6 songs from 3 rock bands, kind of similar but also kind of different, all fantastic:
Incubus - Adolescents, Promises Promises
They are cool. It’s kind of dark, but very captivating. “Adolescents” is fast paced and impressive; “Promises Promises” is a rock ballad, in the same league but soothing you out, after the attack, lol. And it has kept growing and growing since my first listen. Give it a try.
genre: alternative rock
ratings: A: 4/5 stars; PP: 4/5 stars
Hard-Fi - Good for Nothing, Fire in the House
I’ve been a fan for quite some time, their dance rock is just so attractive for me. “Cash Machine”, “Suburban Knights” and “Tied up too Tight” are all huge for me. “Good for Nothing” is a very impressive comeback single. It’s kind of groovy and infectious. It feels like they’ve matured a lot through this new direction. It feels quite new but not losing their root, great track. “Fire in the House” is more relaxed and dancey but still tight and sophisticated, I like it a lot. It’s a great comeback for me!!
genre: indie rock, alternative rock, dance rock

Kasabian - Switchblade Smiles, Days Are Forgotten
They didn’t disappoint! These two comeback singles are superb! “Switchblade Smiles” is kind of aggressive, it just want to rock you deep inside with angry vocals and fast pace vigorous arrangments. I think it succeeded, it’s left a deep impression on me, it’s dark but artistic, it’s simply awesome. “Days are Forgotten” is HUGE. It’s ace, hands down. An epic Kasabian rock ballad you don’t wanna miss. I love the “ah” verse, I love the super sweet chorus, I love the flow, the energy, I love the whole song from start to finish, brilliantly ace, period. Welcome back, welcome back!!! I’m ecstatic!! :DD
genre: indie rock, neo-psychedelia, space rock, electronic rock
