They say the best things in life come to those who wait and after hearing this bands debut EP, I waited and waited, spoke to members of the band trying to find out when the next musical installment was coming, and then I waited some more and then all of a sudden the band contacted me with the news that a new album was coming out on the 12th of October this year, a year and a month after I reviewed the bands debut EP and oh boy, was it worth the wait.
The band very kindly sent me an advance copy of the album to listen to and it took my breath away and not in a T-Pau sort of way either. This record starts off at a 100 miles per hour and stays there, not one track goes over the 3 minute mark, the only track that comes close, clocks in at 2 minutes at 58 seconds which in my mind makes this a perfect Rock 'n' Roll record and a party of an album, in fact the first track would have you believe that this is exactly what they had in mind.
The album powers along with each track leaving you breathless and before you even get your breath back, the next track kicks in and towards the end of the album you are exhausted, at which point you go straight back to track one and start it all over again
This is infectious, catchy, uptempo full on power pop punk sometimes reminding me of The Rezillos or Shonen Knife but it is very much The Sensibles, even though it is as mad as any hatter you are likely to meet, do I like it? I f*cking love it!
This is not re-inventing the wheel, you are not going to hear any new fandangled concept, just well oiled cogs playing straight up Rock 'n' Roll, the wheel doesn't need reinventing, it just needs to be rolled and rolled fast and The Senisbles do just that, and now, now I start waiting for the next installment from this Italian four piece, whilst meanwhile pogoing the night away with the album on repeat.
In the meantime, you can follow, contact, like, love and possibly hear a few more of the tracks prior to the release here: Facebook
