A driving melange of dirty guitar licks, accelerant rhythms and soaring, crystalline vocal, ‘Superfine’ has the sort of life-affirming chorus one imagines soundtracking a road-trip across rock’s expansive, wide-open heartlands, top stowed, sun out, natch. An energised overdriven ear-worm with commercial clout, ‘Superfine’ is a memorable ode to someone striving to be comfortable with the uncomfortable.
The brainchild of singer-guitarist Alison Dear, Waltzer are a north London-based outfit, whose passionate punky offerings have a radio-friendly sheen. Alison cites the band’s main influences as Smashing Pumpkins and Michael Jackson, or Nirvana versus Bananarama (Nirvanarama? Bananirvana? Your call). Evoking the raucousness of The Runaways, the dynamism of Ash and the slick songcraft of Garbage, here is a hard rocking bunch who have a penchant for perfect pop; radio-friendly tunesmiths who, live, whip up a rapturous storm. Waltzer’s broad appeal has already earned them a burgeoning fan base, support slots ranging from Alt-J to Finlay Quaye, and the general consensus that their aspirations
should be limitless.
