Scorpions – ‘Sign of Hope’
Without doubt one of the finest hard rock bands on the planet, the Scorpions are no slouches in writing top quality, more pensive and laid-back fare as well as their heavier material.
This new single is a great example of that and, released specifically with the current global situation in mind really hits the spot with its message of optimism that so many are desperate to hear.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_G8d2n4yFg&w=560&h=315]
Built around gently strummed acoustic guitars and Klaus Meine’s distinctive voice, ‘Sign of Hope’ is arguably one of the most important and timely things they’ve ever done.
While we wait for their full-blooded return, with its excellent structure and performances this is a very fine reminder of why the Scorps have been dominating the scene for so long.
