Another band from Leeds but unlike the Dance To The Radio buch, The Downfall take
most of their influence from America (+ a bit of Pulp?). This sounds like a young band
still trying to find their own identity. The more they sound punkier, the more I like it.
But a few too many minor 7th chords for me - you only need A and G as The Stooges proved.
There are plenty of moments when the hardcore punk influence comes through to make the blood
The album will be released through Voltage Records in late October. If you like
cross-Atlantic bands then you could be in heaven with this band. They are very competent
in what they do but I've heard the competition (At Dusk, Stereotactic, and others) and they have a lot
to live up to.
