Hold Your Horse Is: Forgive and Forget

Reviews|February 4, 2011 3:32 pm

Infectious and Visceral in equal measure, this new (free) single from Frimley/Fleet threesome Hold Your Horse Is continues in the vein of EP 'Rammin' It Home', but ups the noise and melody ante a notch or two.

They're clearly taking cues from the early 2000's cavalcade of British rock bands – Reuben, Hell Is For Heroes, Engerica for example – but there are moments that hint at more American influences – Rival Schools perhaps, or even order viagra online

There's more weight behind these riffs than their number might suggest, and it's a joyous moment when the the words 'I heard what you said, forgive and forget' tumble away to allow a thunderous chorus of Shellacked guitar noise break through.

If you're not already familiar with the band, this is a perfect introduction to band who, rumour has it, will be dropping a full length record at some point this year. For more information on Hold Your Horse Is please visit the links below.
