Mod, Soul, Punk are the underperforming dynamic domain. The hair must sit, rhythm hit 'choruses must Kindle - but it must be for God's sake do not seem that we take great care. Thee Attacks debut album That's Mister Attack To You are on the surface got it right. The energy is reckless, attitude is smartass and none other than Liam Watson (White Stripes, The Kills) have signed the anachronistic sixties sound. Inspired by The Kinks and especially The Who serves the quartet a dozen brand new songs with verses and choruses exactly where this kind belong. Yet there is something that does not play. Something strained, wanted or lost in thought. As for Thee Attacks not yet mastered the style so well that they can deliver on the superior way. Jimmy Attack puts life and soul of his vocals, but still end up with standing pale in the picture. Ritchie Attacks drumming is too loose for my liking. And the songs follow all the genre rules but never burn through on their own. You should try to catch Thee Attacks alive - the rumors will know that they kick ass on stage. Interesting to note how sometimes is so  hard  really provide insight of what a band sounds like through the written word, especially when this retro thing has seeped from the music and fashion stronghold becoming almost of something resembling a movement which  embrace  progress through  balancing it with past, which I think is the best way. Thus,  these young Danish mods emerging from Copenhagen take the Sixties garage-R&B assault seriously and  personalizing debts to the Who, The Sonics and the Kinks with thoroughly modern unabashed excitement,  gift us a new effort. Their  debut LP "That’s Mr Attack To You" on 2010 floored me , and now I´m  severely hooked on this new  release…
