Lostalone - 'I'm A UFO In This City'
Deadly hooks, dirty riffs and lighter-aloft ballads
8 / 10
You can rest assured that a band who all at once imbue memories of Queen, Muse and My Chemical Romance are going to be no shrinking violets. While so many artists prevaricate in a bid to appear louche and cool, Derby’s LostAlone throw in everything in their armoury with ne’er a care about a piffling thing like street cred.
‘I’m A UFO In This City’ is an exuberant rush of virtuosity and showmanship, and it can only be a matter of time before this unabashed explosion of deadly hooks, dirty riffs and lighter-aloft ballads regularly sells out stadiums. Little wonder Gerard Way has been banging on about them.
