Take Me There
Already they have had support slots with R.E.M. and British rock gods Oasis, pretty impressive for a band that only formed in 2002.
Echoing the merciless, heavy-impact rock of the Hives and fellow New Zealand band The Datsuns, The Checks launch a vivacious lunge for eternal glory with their latest, inspirational offering. Trading in an inexperienced fixation for a place among rock giants; this song is sure to help them on the way to divine greatness.
Blistering and soaring guitar riffs, sweeping choruses, epic experimentation and a touch of musical genius, are the components of "Take Me There"; a sustained, momentous and spirited track.
The Checks, find themselves, at this early stage of their career, poignantly perched somewhere between epic magnitude and musical credibility; a huge band for the future.
