It is more likely for me these days to come across new music from artists I feel are vastly overrated by my peers but it’s refreshing to hear a band I think deserves more attention. Cut from a similar musical cloth as The Strokes, The Arctic Monkeys and a sliver of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, THE KOBRA KICKS throw down one heck of a catchy guitar driven tune with their track “Krokodil”. It’s the kind of cool Indie rock song I wish I heard more of actually. “Krokodil” is bursting at the seams with high energy I can feel deep within my bones and its delivered through a hypnotically steady drum beat and a beautifully layered guitar performance that is simply outstanding. The vocals are nicely paced and not overdone leaving me with a feeling like I have rocked out for days without my ears still ringing. THE KOBRA KICKS, a five-piece outfit from Finland, stand out as a band I will keep a close eye on as their debut album nears completion. I believe they have an amazing amount of potential to make a huge name for themselves and if a fun tune like “Krokodil” gives me any early indication, that day might be closer than it may seem to be!
