Similar to H.E.A.T (but with a much more pronounced Scandi accent in the vocals) I'm in!!!

 

If it's from Sweden and talked about on here, I'm usually very excited, this is no exception.

I'd definitely have to echo my above comments about it sounding very typically 80's scandi style. Pretty strong accent, but sounds like it'll be pretty good.

 

Sounds like 'Scratch and Bite' / 'Pleasure Principle' era Treat before they became truly magnificent.

Yeah, good song. Not brilliant, especially as there's no guitar solo (just an extra loud bit of the main riff where the solo should be) but I like this more than Treat.

Yeah, but James is a bit ridiculous, so it's not out of character. He's been very vocal about his disdain towards Treat.

I've listened to Treat again and again. The make a good sound, the production is good, they play well, etc, but I just don't hear good songs. I don't get it, it's a real mystery to me how the band are so revered in these pages, as I think the tunes are so unremarkable. Clearly I'm in a very tiny minority here and I don't hate the band or anything, I just don't think they are any better than thousands of other bands out there.

I'm happy to accept I'm in the wrong if that helps. ;)

Love it. Have we spent the earlier half of this thread saying how much these guys sound like early HEAT? 'Cause they do.

 

That pre-chorus is the most perfect piece of music sex I've heard in an age!

    • Cool song. If ADV is strictly hired to play keys, it should be fine. 
    • Ooh, nice!  I'll have to revisit the first album. 
    • Ugh... I hate you so much. You know I hate you, right? ;} I've never seen either iteration. 
    • These are sounding pretty good.

    • Imagine a world where Andrew Wood didn’t die and Mother Love Bone was still creating awesome music!
    • “My Icarian Flight” featuring the one and only ADV 😜  
    • lol, this was my thought process too. What about Confess?! I like both bands, but not at the expense of one of them.
