The Criticals are a Nashville, TN based rock band formed by Parker Forbes and Cole Shugart in 2018. Combining the influences of Rolling Stones, The Strokes and The Libertines, this Nashville outfit delivers a modern pop/rock sound with a vintage appearance. Having headlined festivals such as FreezeFest and Spudbash in Nashville, as well as shows in Los Angeles, San Diego and Chattanooga, the band is currently recording their debut album in Nashville.

‘Treat Ya Better’ represents a new phase of The Criticals. Melding vintage-inspired melodies of bands like The Rolling Stones with hints of disco-age synthesizers, sonically, ‘Treat Ya Better’ has a touch of everything. The roots of the song were written by the band’s engineer, Brandon Kelly, and quickly passed off to Forbes and Shugart, resulting in an infectious dance-rock track.

With an electrifying live set and infectious songs, The Criticals are here to stay.
