Review: 'Starling Radicals, The'
'Promiseland Vol 1'   

-  Genre: 'Rock' -  Release Date: '24th November 2017'

Our Rating:
They promise ‘ballsy blasts of anthemic rock’ and reference Nirvana, Stereophonics, and Manic Street Preachers. They deliver some blustery stuff that calls to mind Reef, The Cult on a bad night, and a third-division Guns ‘n’ Roses tribute. I’ll concede a hint of MSP, but sadly, it’s later MSP, albeit delivered with the disproportionate arrogance of the band before they actually got any good. ‘Heart of this City’ is perhaps the EP’s strongest and most memorable cut, but that’s because it leans so heavily on ‘Everything Must Go’ (with a hint of later Suede in the guitar work) that it feels like it’s already familiar.

They have some melodic hooks, but let’s be clear: there’s nothing radical about any of this, and they really needn’t rush to present Vol 2.
