It was easy to become a fan of Sonic Boom Six´s self titled album from 2012, a package of an irresistable mix of dubstep and electro rock.
That album truly got me hooked from the first track so I was kinda excited when the Brit´s recently released their 5th studio album "The F-Bomb", but it´s completely different compared to previous album.
The new LP is a mishmash of reggae, dance and ska with plenty of tropico pop vibes. I can´t say that I was too thrilled about these songs but I gave the music a chance and it gets better.
Listening to "The F-Bomb" can be described as hearing Gwen Stefani collaborating with Shaggy and The Police giving some advice about songstructures.
The deluxe version comes with a 2nd disc featuring the band´s live performance at Norwich Owl Sanctuary, lots of music for a small amount of money.
Highlights : Do what you wanna do, Echoes in the dark
