SINGLE REVIEW: The Million – Somebody Better

After establishing a passionate fanbase through the release of their debut EP ‘Hydration Station’, The Million have returned with the exciting announcement that they’ve signed to Island Records and have a new single to show off. ‘Somebody Better’ is the Central Coast trio’s first release in two years and it’s a vibey tune that has a lot of commercial sensibility. 

Sonically sitting somewhere between the recent releases from The Rubens with a slick experimentation similar to SAFIA, they’ve really come out of the gate with a memorable moment to reacquaint themselves with. From the first listen this song just grab ahold of the listener and commands their attention with the festival ready hook. 

Reflecting on him and his girlfriends previous toxic relationships, lead singer Jacob Thomas imagines what would happen if both of their exes started seeing each other. It’s a cool concept that opens up a playful dynamic and allows this song to be bold and memorable. “Hey, thanks for asking, see you never, Cause I’ve found somebody better” he sings during the attitude filled hook. 

This is a very strong comeback for The Million, and a return that will have you wanting to see them live at a headline show or a festival very soon.
