The Geezers - New Day
A combination of searching for great pop and our World Tour brings us to Austria and The Geezers cracking second album. New Day is all joyous pop, big choruses, rocking but gently. It's a song led album, reminiscent of the likes of Roddy Frame and the poppier direction of Brit Pop's better days. The songs have a simple feel, an aim to have you singing along in the sun.
All Is Gold is a stomping opener, Proclaimers like and Reflection is all Manc Anthem. That's All is Scouse Pop jangling and Let Go's Brass backdrop adds to a Terry Hall like feel. Hollow is very New Order. It's hard to convey what a great feel good album this is in so few words, so I hope you'll take my word for it.
There's a lot of variation and it doesn't always work. The Disco of Heartbeats is a bit unnecessary. The album as a whole is an absolute joy though and highly recommended. You can buy it at the likes of Amazon here and listen to more song samples there.
