The Elements’ chief chomp, Andy Bennett has a voice that sounds familiar and, it probably is if you have shown even a passing interest in Ocean Colour Scene in the past four years, as he has been providing the backing vocals for Fowler and co.
There is the obvious influence of Da Scene in ‘Holding Out’ and, it mingles in comfortably with a drawn out the Scorpions sting.
Straight up, winding American style 80’s rock N’ roll still sounds fresh when delivered through a bleeding heart and bounding percussion.
This Brummie four troupe uses ‘Deep Freeze’, to show the warmth nostalgia and the energy that a twining guitar kick can give. It’s a good reminder of why in some ways we are glad that the rock n’ roll spirit never fades for some people.
