THE STRUTS - "YOUNG & DANGEROUS" 2018

THE STRUTS


"YOUNG & DANGEROUS"
2018

BODY TALKS - A storming opening track, The Cult meets Queen in this high tempo hard rocker.

PRIMADONNA LIKE ME - This has a beat like Elvis Costello's "Pump It Up" but its a kind of Iggy Pop And The Stooges New Wave Punk rocker.

IN LOVE WITH A CAMERA - A quirky Glam Rock styled track with elements of Progressive and Classic Rock.  Catchy chorus as well!

BULLETPROOF BABY - Blink-182 and the 90s Pop Alternative Punk bands spring to mind here.  Great tempo, and incredibly engaging with the snappy chorus.

WHO AM I? - This is a great Alternative Pop song, similar to bands like Maroon 5 and a quirkiness of Electric Six. 

PEOPLE - Snow Patrol meets early Def Leppard, radio friendly Pop Rock at its best.

FIRE (Part 1) - Alternative New Wave Rock akin to The Psychedelic Furs.  Carries on right through at a brisk tempo and a booming chorus ending with a piano finish.

SOMEBODY NEW - Freddie Mercury reborn in this Queen-like slow rock ballad, awesome track.

TATLER MAGAZINE - Makes me think of The Sweet and Slade, a brilliant 70s Glam Rocker.  Love this.

I DO IT SO WELL - This is an experimental Rock/Hip Hop fusion hybrid which has a Beastie Boys style that smacks you in the face like a brick.  Instant favourite.

FREAK LIKE YOU - 80s sing-a-long Classic Rock, top stuff.

ASHES (Part 2) - Slow tempo anthemic Rock ballad, proving the band can turn their hands to all styles.

BODY TALKS (Featuring Kesha) -  Remix of the opening track with Pop rap star Kesha.  I am not familiar with much of her work but this really works.  A great end to a great second album by the band!
