The Suzukis – Reasons For Leaving

NAME: The Suzukis
SINGLE: Reasons For Leaving
DATE: 26July2010

LABEL: Deltasonic


FIVE WORD REVIEW: Dull as angry northern dishwater


LINE UP: Adam Bamford – guitar, Chris Veasy – vocals, Robert Warnes – bass, Stuart Robinson – drums

WHAT’S THE STORY?: Angry Wigan lads The Suzukis named their powerhouse sound after a particlarly energetic motorbike brand. Oooh. Speedy. Scary. They produce raw, unashamed rock ‘n’ roll that tries (and sadly fails) to live up their high velocity name.

The four-piece aim to inject some much-needed adrenalin into todays flagging indie-punk scene, however more often than not The Suzukis’ indentikit teen rebellion sound comes off as a touch contrived, laughably trite on occasion.

‘Reasons for Leaving’ begins slowly before sliding into a brooding Nirvana-esque riff that repeats throughout, punctated by the odd burst of drums here and there. Not exactly quiet-loud-quiet but close enough to be predicable. Chris Veasy’s vocals attempt to sound seething and enraged, yet for the most part closely resemble the mumblings of a particularly grumpy teenager. So far, so dull. Heavy distortion on the guitars render his ‘reasons for leaving’ indecipherable, which may be for the best.

The band are most successful when they really let rip but this isn’t enough to save this single from being entirely forgettable. Zzzzz….

SOUNDS LIKE: Misguided sonic aggression that may have sounded new and exciting 20 years ago, but now sounds like a grimly unamusing parody of grunge.

YOU’LL LIKE THIS IF: for you, music hasn’t moved forward since the late 80s..
