Buzzes and hums. Clicks and clacks. A distant rumble that echoes back and forth between the ears. Stricken City, an indie foursome from London, make music that shimmers and jangles at all the right times. The song “Some Say” utilizes horns and keyboards as well as it does guitars and drums. Not to mention lead singer Rebekah Raa’s lovely vocals, which are layered nicely on top of everything else in the mix here.
You might remember us posting on Stricken City a couple of times last year. The band’s new album Losing Colour is apparently its last, and it hits stores in the U.S. today via The Kora Records. It is guitar-pop suitable for the masses with a dash of quirks and magic. Check out “Some Say” below.
