You’ve either got it or you haven’t

There are any number of young bands out there, featuring choppy new wave guitars, incessant drumming and attractive female vocalists. Most of them are a bit rubbish. Stricken City definitely aren’t. Just don’t ask me why. They’ve just got something the others haven’t.

On the other hand, I don’t think So So Modern have it. I’ve given the Kiwi band’s spiky electro guitar pop from their new compilation album a few listens now and though they come close, they’re not quite there. They tickle, but don’t really satisfy.

Download the new Stricken City EP for FREE from their website. Two more ace free tracks on their myspace. The So So Modern compilation Friends and Fires + 0000 EPs is out on 7 July on Transgressive Records.

Stricken City video action time!
