Demob Happy – Dream Soda
For every histrionic ‘Rock is Back!’ headline coined in the wake of Royal Blood’s anomalous chart success, there’s a band like Demob Happy, to whom it never occurred that rock was ever anywhere but in the marrow of their bones. Like the first, best, Queens Of The Stone Age record, the Brighton group’s debut album is a riotous, vomit-crusted affair. Rocks & reminds us a bit of Nirvana – both excellent qualities!

Armed only with an arsenal of guitars and northern chips on their slender shoulders Brighton’s rising garage rock force Demob Happy have this year asserted themselves as one of the UK’s most exciting new bands. Drawing on the likes of Nirvana, Queens of The Stone Age, Melvins, The Beatles, The Stooges and Kyuss for source material, their off-kilter pop music constantly stretches beyond their genre to create a spontaneous clatter of fresh and exciting sounds. They have retained accolades with recent single ‘Wash It Down’ and lived up to NME’s declaration that the band are delivering “some of the most riff-heavy songs of recent years”, having also been championed by the likes of The Independent, DIY, Best Fit, The 405, BBC Radio 1, 6 Music and XFM.
