The track is just what rock and roll dreams are made of. It’s a hip shaker; groovy, riff-heavy and passionate, all in the space of four minutes.
And with the state of our world right now, a cocktail of noise like this has never felt more necessary. Aside from being a dose of serotonin, Its Been A Long Time is the ultimate party anthem, born to be blasted out of the speakers in every bar, pub or club around. If you were looking for a soundtrack for your next night on the beers, you’ve found it here.
Its Been A Long Time is a ground-shaking single that commands attention and fists in the air. Grab a mate, let your hair down and play it loud!
As far as frontwoman Desiree Hancock goes, it’s clear she’s taken influence from the likes of Taylor Momsen (The Pretty Reckless) and Lzzy Hale (Halestorm). But hey, with a delivery this strong, we’re not complaining! Her authentic, rich tones are the perfect match for an addicting soundscape, upping the replay factor of the track that little bit more. Wicked Envy have stomped onto the scene in a big way. Its Been A Long Time is a ground-shaking single that commands attention and fists in the air. Grab a mate, let your hair down and play it loud!
