UNDERCUT - Something To Die
For (Distiller Records -11/07/05)
Born in an aircraft hanger, Bristol boys Undercut manage to be both powerful and delicate in equal measures with a sound most closely comparable to the glorious Second Sun.
Johnny Benn has a wonderfully compelling voice which soars effortlessly over the band's potent, anthemic soundscapes as, before you realise it, Undercut's chiming guitars and infectious words have become lodged firmly in your head.
With its fizzing melody and irresistible "ooh"s,
past single Soul Food Mother gives a concise example of the guitar
epics on offer here, although it's haunting ninth track Everything
Is Good and soaring penultimate track This Town which are
the real highlights of an impressive debut release.
