The music world is dominated by "anthemic rock" songs now more than ever. It's normally a catch-all description for those songs which strive to become emotional by piling on the guitars and emotion in equal measure but in these post-Coldplay days it's also associated with a lack of ambition. Undercut have evidently worked hard on anthemic rock having spent their early days mastering their craft in an aircraft hangar which goes some way towards explaining their louder and slightly harder sound; making them tougher than Coldplay, more interesting than Longview and more melodic than The Open. Amongst their armoury are two fine singles: 'To Die For' and 'Soul Food Mother' making for fine surging rock numbers. Whilst singer Johnny Benn's vocals sometimes lack character (particularly on the ballads), he is the ideal foil for the twin guitar attacks unleashed on the fist-clenching indie-rockers (see 'Holding On', 'Everything Is Good', 'Rise To Fall'). Solid rather than spectacular, Undercut prove that they can deliver the goods via manly aggression and some fine hooks.
