Check out Retro Video Club’s ‘1993’ if you get the chance. Sound of the summer.
I’ve mentioned this song before when I covered Retro Video Club in a previous feature, highlighting it as a stand out track for me (see the full post here) and there’s a reason I think that way. From the simple riff to introduce the song, to the build up to an almost anthemic chorus, ‘1993’ grabs hold of you and hooks you in. Talking of old romance and relationships, it wouldn’t be out of place on an episode of The Inbetweeners or other similar adolescent TV series. The vocals are powerfully delivered, and the lead guitar provides subtle melodies behind, before launching into a soaring solo.
As I mentioned earlier, this song has the feel of a potential indie anthem that’s still to be discovered, and could be something massive – it certainly deserves it, and so do the band. Have a listen and make up your own mind:
