Hype! is an album ready & waiting to fill the room around you with chaotic energy & classic rock & roll brightness. It’s a project fit for the build-up to anything big – consider this your weekend playlist.
Oddnote have an incredibly hard-hitting, traditional rock sound that just oozes style & authenticity right now
A beautiful moment, encouraging & all-inclusive, making you feel inclined to join in. Easy to picture a live performance sweeping a crowd off their feet.
I have serious doubts about the future of rock & roll. I don’t really hear anyone doing it. It’s a lot of DJs & rappish kind of stuff, singing to a backing track or jam bands & tribute/cover bands, which I don’t get at all. It’s like why would you go see people playing other people’s music?
The three members bring a sort of energy to their aptly named band, certain to get audiences out of their seat & possibly onto their table – head banging like a caffeine addict & true rocker.
Everything from the musicality to the performances to the way in which this release has been recorded – it all works towards this shared sentiment of nostalgic raw energy & realness.
Bad Marriage are living the life right now, offering something that not too many bands or artists seem able to do. This sort of showmanship & positivity can’t generally be faked, so it’s a pleasure to witness it in all of its authentic glory.
There’s a touch of underlying sadness, but it’s expressed only by means of a single line – the music is consistently bright & upbeat, the optimism unquestionable, adding to that energizing element & colourful ambiance that keeps you entertained.
We need more music like this. The grit & passion remains, but there’s also a feeling of possibility, of a bright future ahead, and that’s greatly valuable.
He crafts his tracks in an open & fee manner, yet still keeps you embraced by the warmth & weight of engaging, gripping, authentic rock & roll.
