In the world of Autumn rocking bands with Atomic Opera and King?s X as the leaders,we also find this nice quartet with the excellent name EARTH TO ANDY among the other two moody acts!
A sad thing though is that after a good debut (Chronicle kings-99) and an EP they have now split up. But as the final thing to do Earth to Andy releases this new and last album "Sticks the landing" through their website,it contains 15 songs in the same good song quality as the debut and the only thing to comment as a minor good thing is the sound which is a self financed home studio project.
But since the songs are really nice and have a cool style like a mix of King?s X,Atomic Opera meeting Riverdogs.....I won?t let the poor sound quality take this album down to a bad rating,no no no!
"Lies and alibis","Still belong to me" and "Never be cold" could?ve been taken from any of the latest King?s X releases,lovely axework from Tony Lopacinski.
When they slow down,I come to think of Rob Lamothe and Riverdogs but without Rob because Andy in ETA has a more raspy voice,"Star racer" and "Whisper" are 2 most enjoyable tracks. They also show a more modern rock/powerpop style to their sound with "Calling (What did you do)","2 beautiful sisters","Stay" and "Down" that echoes out Enuff?z?nuff quite a lot and who could be happier than me about that.....gorgeous harmonies.
