This one arrived on the LOUD HORIZON desk this morning: THE BOAT ENGINE MAKE NOISE is possibly a candidate for the award of ‘Strangest Band Name of the Year’ award at the LOUD HORIZON year-end awards ceremony. If I had one.
This five piece from Genoa in Italy blend hardcore with electro sounds to produce a pretty invigorating sound. Personally, I’d like to hear more before deciding whether I like this or not .. I love the hardcore side and the strong vocals, but am still a little unconvinced on the slowed-down breaks and synth sounds.
The band’s debut EP ‘Black Rainbows‘ is due for release early in 2013 so we’ll have a better impression then. Meantime I have to say that I do like this particular track taken in isolation.
