Amplifier : The Consultancy

Monumental future-rock with its head in the clouds

Amplifier are an awesome new Manc thunder trio who herald a brave new dawn of superhero music. Clearly not of this Earth, they’re still the most convincing evidence yet that rock music still has somewhere to go while recalling a time when these things were a matter of life and death.

Their first single, ‘The Consultancy’ has guitars that roar like machine guns, drums like a battering ram and a throbbing, sonorous bass that holds the whole thing together like a massive tidal wave. It’s that simple, and yet still insane enough to roar on about ‘the glint in the sun of an approaching tsunami!’’ If pop is holding hands, indie is necking and rock is the sex, then ‘The Consultancy’ is a long rampaging buttfuck from a gang of alien sex vikings from Hell. Er, only music.
