CENTRE EXCUSE: ‘Stop, Drop & Roll.’


 CENTRE EXCUSE are a taut Rutland trio with a unique sound. Fusing 80’s synths and pop-punk melodies, they are likely to win over a lot of new fans when they release their second single, ‘Stop Drop & Roll,’ in two weeks. It’s a heavy but danceable pop song, in the mould of All Time Low or even Elliott Minor, and is sure to connect in a live setting.

Where the group differ from some of their rivals though, is a deep rooted set of influences which show through in the level of detail which goes into their music. Although the combination of their disparate influences may sound a little over the top – imagine 90’s punk-rockers The Offspring and Blink-182 facing off against Depeche Mode – the end product is a frenzied whirlwind of synths with some crunching riffs thrown in for good measure. An extremely layered sound for such a young band, the single is impressive.

Despite lyrics centred on frustration at “the man-made disasters that are destroying our planet”, this is a brilliantly catchy and pulsating punk rock song sure to get people moving at a live show. I would expect these young lads to do very well indeed, and the radio edit of the single could easily end up picking up some airplay.

(Released through New Motion Records on 26th March 2012)
