Fresh: Rocketeer


Brit pop. The one genre which perenially receives stick, yet simultaneously stirs everyone’s soft spots. The reason I’ve brought this up? Rocketeer channel that mid-90s sound better than any of the resuscitated ‘mainstays’ do themselves. ‘Leave Me’ is a little bit like ‘Pumping On Your Stereo’-era Supergrass in its keys-led catchiness, but a bit like Suede in frontman Felix Hagan’s mid-way talk-sing and dark one-liners: ‘wisdom kills more people than it saves’. Throw in a bit of Ruarri Joseph’s blues-folk and you’re there. Preposterously in-your-face. Preposterously memorable. We can’t wait for their debut LP to drop.
