For the better part of the past two years, Falkirk indie rockers The Nickajack Men have been consistently making waves and gaining a reputation for their talents, and they are getting set to stir the pot again with a new AA single courtesy of the lovely folk at Electric Honey.
Before diving in, I took the time to revisit their previous releases from last year – the Wasted Years EP and the single Can’t Take It Anymore – to refresh myself, and they both still hold up immensely well. With that in mind, do they meet that established standard again? Simply put, yes.
Changed Ways doesn’t waste a second in grabbing the listener, sparking an infectiously raving energy that never simmers. The riffs are off the charts, the keys add a nice extra layer and the drums are forcible, particularly in the latter half.
Although Different Languages doesn’t stand out as much compared to it’s companion piece sound wise, the boys make up for this with great writing, while also maintaining a dynamic rhythm.
It’s pretty safe to say that these tracks are smashing, and continue to prove The Nickajack Men as a must-see act in the Scottish Scene. But don’t take my word for it, buy it for yourselves as soon as it hits the digital shelves, and even feel free to purchase a limited vinyl once they become available.
“CHANGED WAYS/DIFFERENT LANGUAGES” IS AVAILABLE ON FRIDAY 1st JUNE
