SONIC BOOM SIX - SINGLE REVIEW

Sonic Boom Six - The High Cost Of Living (Xtra Mile Recordings) 
Sonic Boom Six - The High Cost Of Living

Release Date: 28th October 2013

Fancy a bit of socially aware indie-pop that you can skank to and has some really nice crunch guitars and squelchy synth sounds? Yeah? Thank God for that cos I've got literally nothing else for you right now. Sonic Boom Six are back with new single 'The High Cost Of Living' and it's a big ol' tune - potentially (whisper) this could be their break through tune. It's got hints of Republica and Lily Allen which will appeal to the masses, the aforementioned awesome guitar and synth noises which will appeal to the 'cool' crowd, some deft observation on consumerism and the real price of cheap labour and, finally, you can dance like your uncle dances to Madness without looking like a plank. Throw in a bit of tight snare drumming and a nice video which seems to feature members of Kraftwerk working as shop assistants in Debenhams and this has got XFM playlist written all over it. And why not, eh?
