Hey, what is it with Manchester coz here's yet another tasty outfit from them there parts and they're bringing their own brand of post-indie rockin'-pop with 'em. Think Chili's and you'll start to see something approaching the Bright Kicks sound and feel! This aint yer normal indie thing here you know, Bright Kicks have moved things along a bit, added a hint of funkiness and a touch of nu-soul and come up with a vibrant sound that's big, bouncy and as commercial as hell! Certainly you can pick out a few influences. Let's face it, it's becoming ever harder to come up with a sound that doesn't owe its origins to one successful band or another. Bright Kicks have taken their influences and turned them to good use in coming up with a wholly British sound that has global appeal and universal marketing potential.

In just four damn fine tracks Bright Kicks have set out their stall in no uncertain terms; they show what you can do with a bit of phatt funky bass (Greg Kelly), incessant angular guitars (Darryn Clarke) and metronomically precise percussion (David Whitworth). Vocally Bright Kicks kick ass too! Bobby Magee slams his foot to the plate to provide the fourth instrument in Bright Kicks' dynamic armoury. Together these guys lay it down big, bold and amazingly tight as jazzy undercurrents feed the pounding rhythms to bolster the superbly proportioned instrumental onslaught with everything finally fusing into one meaty and pretty hot sound.

As a weapon to lead a promotional attack, this four track work has everything Bright Kicks need to force open many new doors and make some of those 'big cats' stop in their tracks and take notice. This EP is one hell of an introduction to a mighty fine sounding band - faultless, flawless, very professional and nicely appetite whetting!! Peter J Brown aka toxic pete (www.toxicpete.co.uk)

"Mixing funk and powerful but clanging rings of disco riffing, bluesy clean guitar sounds, they have a pretty good formula to accompany the soulful, punchy vocals. Bright Kicks pull off a great sound that looks heartily back at early 90’s soulful rock" - MANCHESTER MUSIC
