After releasing the 2 albums, "When it´s over I´ll come back again" (2006) and "Songs for the fallen apart" (2009), the Swedish indie rock band Molotov Jive thought it was time to take another step soundwise. They hooked up with San Fransisco producer Sylvia Massy (Tool) and recorded their new album "Storm" in USA, this time they´ve got a much rawer and heavier rock sound but still with traces of Britrock and new wave. I really like the distorted bass and the production is spot on stadium rock. Perhaps it´s time for their big break since they are touring with Glasvegas and the single "Friendship" has started to create a buzz in the music industry. This is without doubt a strong album and I do smile when I hear moments of A Flock of Seagulls in their melodies. Thumbs up!
