The first single from planet OASIS in over two years is finally released and sports the title "The Hindu Times". Mmmm, strange name, I hear you say. Well yeah it is. It is also two words that aren't mentioned once in the lyrics to the song. There's one verse repeated verbatim and the same goes for the chorus.
But hang on. I'm making it sound like the first Noel Gallagher song to be heard in over two years is a dog. Well, you'd be very wrong. "The Hindu Times" is 3 minutes of unabashed British rock and roll in the best sense of the word.
If you're a fan of Oasis, this song will make you believe that "Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants" never happened. Oasis have (thankfully) done away with the moaning rock star angst of their previous efort and have aimed squarely for the jugular with a song that sounds like you think you've heard it before. After one listening, it's in your skull and it wont leave for love nor money.
It has all the hallmarks of the classic Oasis track. It's loud, it's angry, it's lyrics mean practically nothing. There's a riff going through it thats so simple it makes you wonder why you never thought of it before.
In short "The Hindu Times" is the greatest comeback single EVER released by any band EVER. If you thought Oasis were dead and buried, listen to the track and believe, ONCE AGAIN, in the greatest animal ever produced by Great Britain.
