Jimmy and the Sounds - Sounds

Reviewed by Tim Thackray

If this music is razor sharp indie then the razor is well and truly blunted, rusting a bit on the side with a slight tinge of dry blood. Sounding like a bloated Reverend and the Makers, this lad rock affair about dancing at a disco leads to some pretty uninspiring lyrics which actually ruin the only positive aspect of the song, the melody of the chorus. Maybe I’m being too harsh though, while this may not be ‘quirky indie’ they strive too, the band definitely has the knack of writing a catchy melody so the potential is there for development, and that means never using an underwater vocal affect in a song ever again, hear me?

  1. I think the reviewer although welcome to his opinion obviously knows little about music and probably should not give up his day job
