Change your mind, wont be too long
Swing off my branch, swing onto you
Now she's bored, try something new"

Paparazzi Whore's latest offering will be available to the world
from April 28, but I had the absolute pleasure of hearing it,
pre-release via their press-pack.
'Not since the days of such iconic artists as The Jam, The
Stranglers and PIL has a UK band allowed their sound to be dominated
by bass' read the release note, and I have to agree, it's an awesome
sound, like being hit by Panzer Division!!!!!
There is an urgency about the song, it flows along quite steadily
but all the time, your heart is beating like its about to explode.
The basslines are loud and the dominant force behind the sound, but
the very clever use of keys and guitars, alongside the drum sound,
which is almost 'Paul Cook-esque' in its volume, make this a very
very danceable outfit.
This sound will appeal to a very wide age range, as the kids will
appreciate its 'dance club' elements and the older punk types will
be drawn by its energy and rawness. They're destined for success and
have already tasted the big time as a featured artist on the hit
television show in the UK, 'Singing with the Enemy'.
