So it's my 100th post... bit embarrassing I've rambled on that much isn't it?

Its all been a bit sporadic recently, lots to tell but not sure if it's all a bit yesterdays news by now... One thing I did do though was a short review of The Hit Ups new EP. It's free to download at the minute so if I were you I would get. on. that. shit.

Do it HERE

This four piece collective have done it again with this latest EP, not only proving that they are able to evolve seamlessly and without contrition, they’re making some pretty reckless waves that you can’t help but feel the reverberations of. New track Unforgivable is British in the best possible way, the band’s notorious party ethos is seeping out of every riff – if you were after something to make a room of people smack into each other like a bag of angry snakes this definitely fits the bill. Perhaps more commercial in the sense of radio friendly play to their more recent work, but that’s no bad thing. Any potential hook is exploited ruthlessly to make this tune as addictive as crack. Outstanding rhythm has always been one of the Hit Up’s strong points and this EP is no exception, with a slicker sound and a tighter composition; Josh’s vocals course through the tracks like opium in a pumping vein. 66Sexy is similarly as promiscuously delicious as its title suggests – a dirty, writhing incarnation of a song that deserves a sweaty, hair tugging audience, glassy eyes half closed through the bridge until the thrashing chorus shatters your spine. The always evolving band have made something truly rare these days with this EP – credible, unique and defiantly decent music that blows a lot of the competition clean out of the water.
