If you’re like me, you’ve been watching John Cena and James Gunn’s latest project, Peacemaker. Among many other highlights of the HBO Max series is a soundtrack of 80s arena rock and hair metal. While maybe not always a genre I steer towards, it’s such a blast when highlighted in the right way… like the series does.
The show features the likes of Foxy Shazam, Hanoi Rocks, and Enuff Z’Nuff. And, damn, if this latest single from Hollywood’s own THORSLUND wouldn’t fit right in with the show’s aesthetic. The Sunset Strip sound is alive and well with THORSLUND, a duo of brothers originally from Canada who now hail from Hollywood and sound like they’ve bathed in the LA rock scene for decades. A classic sound with an undeniable ability to write a hook, THORSLUND’s latest – “Firecracker Man” – is a song that’ll make a believer out of the biggest hair metal haters out there.
