SONG REVIEW: The Subways, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

TITLE: Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
BAND: The Subways
LABEL: Cooking Vinyl
RELEASED: May 7th 2012

Here’s a nice little treat if you love indie fused with loud metallic noise. The new single from The Subways is out and it’s already proving to be a big hit with the band’s fanbase and online and with its incredibly catchy chorus, it’s not too hard to see why.

The Hertfordshire trio are currently taking a trip around the UK, touring their latest album Money and Celebrity, which was released in September. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is the third single to come from it, following We Don’t Need Money To Have A Good Time and It’s A Party.

The thumping drums, slamming guitar riffs and catchy vocals all play a part in making the song one that you won’t forget in a hurry. It even has a touch of pop about it, which could mean it will do well in the charts. However, I’m not sure it’s a song that could convert you to punchy metal sounds, if you’re not already into them, as it’s very firmly in the indie/metal genre.

The lyrics are clearly about a warring couple with a dominant female, who the male voice wishes he could escape from. It’s about love and desire being able to rip you apart and yet still leave you wanting more. I wouldn’t really call it sadistic but more metaphorical and emotional than physically violent.

I’m sure just one click on the play button below and you’ll be jumping around the room to this track. It’s fast, angry and electric, which could be a big headbanging hit on dancefloors everywhere this summer.
