Review of Lifehouse’s single Halfway Gone

Lifehouse Halfway Gone Single

Whilst there UK success has been fleetingly limited to a top 30 single in 2001 (‘Hanging By A Moment’), Lifehouse are on the verge of releasing their fifth record in their native USA. This is the first cut to be taken from their new album ‘Smoke & Mirrors’, slated for release on December 8.

Peers of Goo Goo Dolls and Matchbox Twenty, Lifehouse may not be as well known but have a catalogue to equal the radio-friendly rock of those acts. Jason Wade has a voice that was always destined to front a band and on ‘Halfway Gone’ it is used to great affect on a rousing chorus and ‘Oh oh’ hook that gets you from the first listen. Sure, this isn’t boundary pushing in any way, but it’s unshakably fun rock-pop that would brighten most people’s day.
