I must confess to being wary when presented with the press release on this and didn’t raise much hope for a Birmingham three piece that ‘perfectly encompass the traditions of English Art-House rockers’ BUT Rebellious Jukebox had me hooked from the first chiming guitar chords.
Moody Bauhaus-esque vocals compliment the shifting tempo, as searing guitar propels the intricate drum groove and driving bass line into a frenetic climax.
Dark, brooding and brilliant ‘Killer On The Dancefloor’ also has the potential to implode a mosh pit. This is the sound of Ian McCulloch wrestling Brian Molko ‘Women In Love’ style and I really can’t praise it highly enough, it has been on repeat and none of its power has diminished yet.
Catch the band live before they join the big league, because on this evidence they’re going all the way. 8.5/10
