I can’t believe it’s already been a decade since Goldfinger released their sixth album, Hello Destiny… (SideOneDummy Records, 2008) but it has.
The first single to be taken from the album was in fact ‘One More Time’, which although a great track, I couldn’t resist sharing ‘Get Up’ in all of its pop punk/ska punk glory! In fact, on iTunes, it is actually the most popular track on the record!
It actually wasn’t released as a single, so no music video exists but it’s chock full of political messages that really pack a punch! It’s the sort of song you can really visualise a politically-driven video for though; the kind that would feature news clips, etc.!
Great song, great message, incredible band!
What are your thoughts of this 2008 pop punk/ska punk belter? Are you still a fan of the track, 10 years on? Do you have a #ThrowbackThursday track to recommend us? Please leave your thoughts or song suggestions in a comment or via social media.

Matoma – ‘Running Out’ featuring Astrid S
Matoma is a Norwegian DJ and producer, known mostly for his tropical house sound.
Recently, Matoma (aka Tom Stræte Lagergren) remixed songs for the likes of One Direction, Marlon Roudette and Eminem.
This song was released back in 2015 and is a massive tropical house anthem but I’ve only just discovered it. It’s gaining popularity on the club circuits and is a tune!

Zara Larsson – Lush Life

She recently worked with MNEK on a massive hit of 2015, ‘Never Forget You‘.
This solo song is due out this Friday and the video is pretty cool too (check it out below)!
I love her sound and her voice is quite similar to Rihanna‘s but there’s something interesting about her sound.
