Ain't Losing Any Sleep

City Rockers

15/05/06

The assertively stammering vocals of Craig Wellington are thrown around by the climbing clatter of shrill percussion and winding guitars let out in opener 'Ain't Losing Any Sleep', to attain a gnarly feel thrusting proudly between the vibes of contemporaries Hard-Fi and Boy Kill Boy, introducing the style of this Shrewsbury born and Leeds formed foursome. Disgruntled subject matter coupled with provocative delivery, again proves to be a reliable combination in this modern age and is now enshrined as music's equivalent of the 4-4-2 formation, but it works.

A five minute, jam inspired art rock/blues haunt 'Who Called The Dandy?', shows this outfit's ability to draw out their sound and layer musical consistency to justify their success in Zane Lowe's Fresh Meat Competition a while back. The arty commencement to this number creates a backdrop for the carefully pedestrian vocals to stride along to, before the arty/spacey undercurrent gets stronger, creating an impression consistent with that of Four Tet. The Sunshine Underground has provided a ray of their potential craft and broadness that may startle the less adventurous listener.
