13 Amp – Promo
A slice of ballsy indie from the North-West of England. The four tracks on offer on this promo for the debut self-released album Moths are all loud, infectious and raucous. I have no real idea of the content of the lyrics as the vocals are somewhat indistinct in places. However the title of Do You Think You Invented Drug Abuse? does point to a certain humorous intent.
Of the songs herein it is the second Talk Attack which utilises a rather catchy little horn stab which most catches the ear. All thorough the tracks are catchy riffs. They also do a nice line in thumping bass and driving drum parts.
All in all it points to a rather fun album of unashamedly raucous indie. Nowt new or original, but this is uncomplicated and unpretentious stuff.
