More Kicks- I’m On The Brink 7”. You had to know I would respond positively to a band that describes its music as a "pop explosion"! Seriously: if a pop explosion is going down, I want to be there! On their second single, London's More Kicks deliver a treat for the ears for any power pop fan. The quality of these songs is no surprise given that Sulli from Suspect Parts/Ripchord is at the helm along side members of Los Pepes and the Miscalculations. He's a wonderfully talented songwriter, and with this particular band he focuses on the fine art of melody-driven pop music. The band cites influences ranging from the Buzzcocks to Squeeze to Supergrass, with additional nods to '60s pop and soul music. The result is a sound that stands out within the power pop world - a lot of that owed to Sulli's distinctively Brit-accented vocals. "I'm On The Brink" is the hit here: a simple yet beautifully crafted song that glides on a melody you'll be humming all day. And "He's Gonna Let Her Down" hits with its punchy guitars and memorable sing-along hooks creating a timeless power pop tune with a modern feel. Really strong 3 songer here from a band with an impecable line-up. Import from the Germany on Wanda Records.
