Calling All Astronauts

#Resist (Supersonic Media)

By • Jun 21st, 2020 • Category: Album review

If songs such as ‘Divided States Of America’ were not written in the past few weeks then these guys deserve the award for Prophets Of The Year. Lyrics like shut down/lock down/close the door are truly fearsome in their abrasiveness and timeliness.

They’re also a bit funky in their guitar work. This is particularly true of album standout ‘Resist’ and lyrics such as give them the future that they deserve/A world for the many/And not just the few.

It has the grit, grime, sound and vibe of a real, sweaty underground rock club gig from somewhere like CBGBs or The Boardwalk. A true blast of adrenaline and politics, then, which should get us all fired up nicely for coming out of lockdown. As well as being a damned fine album.
