By Alita's Curse
Alita's Curse have been playing for less than a year and, for a band at such an early stage of their musical expedition, it's not bad. It's got an 80's glam rock feel that makes it sound like it belongs on the 'Lost Boy's' soundtrack.
The production on this track makes me think Alita's Curse would be better live, as the vocals sound diluted on this single, falling short of their earlier track 'One For The Team.' The chorus is a bit lazy and the weighty instrumental sections leave the lyrics lost and unsatisfying. The drums, on the other hand, are a bit of a polish away from spectacular, robust and cascading.
Confident guitar runs throughout and bursts into life in the solo, but it's the drums that are the real magic here. Given that the vocals could do with more grit and balls it's interesting enough to warrant excitement for their currently-under-construction album 'Retaliation Life.'
