“If great songwriting seemed lost in the Central PA music scene then look no further than Farley’s EP ‘A Good Problem to Have’ ”.
Julie Schreiber - PA Music Scene Review
The band FARLEY consists of four all-star musicians from the North East PA music scene. Together they completed and released “A Good Problem to Have” in July, 2011 and quickly gained notoriety. FARLEY’s debut CD has captured the attention of audiences from coast to coast and over seas as well.
Taking hit single “Hindsight” as a prime example, this single sets up the listener for the rest of the EP. It is very radio friendly, upbeat, danceable, and it’s the perfect song to introduce this group to new listeners. “Hindsight” has catchy verses and is loaded with hooks, along with incredible lyrical parlays and instrumentation that is divine. The story line with this single (and yes, there is a story behind every song) revolves around growing up and looking back at the glory years of life passed; perfectly summed up in the title “Hindsight”.
Song after song from the album contains incredible storylines and creative arrangements. FARLEY’s music soothes the soul with its strong sense of familiarity, yet invites the listener to delve deeper into the lyrical content and musical arrangements with each and every listen.
