The Sunshine Underground: Commercial Breakdown

Our rating:

Track Of The Year already, it says here

It’s a treat when a band materialises with a killer tune, but to pack two early contenders for Track Of The Year on to one debut single is just spoiling us. ‘Commercial Breakdown’ is a punky, funky thump from the outset, packing all the chest-swelling emotion of Razorlight but laying off the pomposity, while ‘The Way It Is’ injects some no-nonsense northern soul into the slick NYC handclappy cowbell-banging formula, echoing The Rapture but replacing their signature sax with the sound of washing machines and motorbikes. Buy, beg, steal, borrow or MySpace it, just do whatever it takes to get yourself a piece of the underground.
