This Monday saw the release of the debut album by the wonderfully named Dananananaykroyd (although it must be said, their name reminds me far too much of this punk classic which I happen to own on yellow 7″) almost 10 months after the release of their EP Sissy Hits.
This Glasgow 6 piece play what is affectionately known as “fight pop” (or post hardcore or whatever) and have been on the radar of a fair few people for a while now but hopefully with their first full release they can kick on and make it big time.
The album itself starts off with the thunderous instrumental ‘Hey Everyone’ before seamlessly flowing into ‘Watch This!’ with the band all singing the band name. The album as a whole works really well with their slightly darker and distorted indie guitars complementing the boisterous vocals (and two drummers) rather well.
Each track rolls into the next giving you hardly any time to recover, keeping the intensity of the album going.
Highlights: Pink Sabbath, Infinity Milk
