Про Good Times Only
The Czech singing boyband Good Times Only caught the attention of 2020 with their debut album Pěkný chvíle, on which frontman Filip Černý wrote about his crumbling relationship.
In 2022, the five-piece band, already playing minimalist synthpop but not forgetting the guitars, moved onto the dancefloor with two electronic-tinged singles – Zona100 and Tak jsme tu teetering on the edge of alternative and mainstream.
In October 2023, Good Times Only, who have managed to support names like alt-J, Gus Dapperton and Marcell during their existence, release their second album entitled Teď na to myslim. The playful record was produced by Lazer Viking and GTO presents contemporary pop with Czech lyrics as they imagine it. Smooth synthpop is interspersed with acoustic guitars and piano across the eight tracks, and with their newfound “songier” attitude, the band winks at their beginnings and debut EP Sunday Luka. During the writing of Teď na to myslim, American rapper Lil Yachty, the band The War On Drugs and Slovakian musician Vašo Patejdl were able to alternate between reference tracks. Not even the four taster singles (including For You Cool and You Can't Live Like This from 2023) could give a hint of what the rest of the record would sound like. Good Times Only show themselves at their most mature and playful yet on Teď na to myslim.
