Roadkill

By Engerica

It may be taking one hell of a long time but there are slight signs Engerica may actually be making a dent in British rock. Granted it's at least two years overdue but good things come to those who wait and a re-vamped 'Roadkill' is next on the Engerica chopping board. Following a similar line to previous single 'My Demise' (schizophrenic, off his head vocals and lyrics combined with serious hardcore riffage in the background), but still a line not shared by anyone else around at the moment. Vocalist David Gardner's choice to take risks and go off on weird vocal tangents all over the place very much paying dividends in some respects while maybe offering the chance for naysayers to shun them for that very reason. Take this line for example - "My dad says don't take chances, don't do drugs and don't trust fat kids", would Chris Martin sing that? I think not. The B-side is less of a song, more of an account of a detective show. With Eighties MatchBox style meanderings and cutting jack-knife guitars to delay the momentum but also turn the number into something even more eerily listenable. Confused? You should be. I'm sure Engerica are.
