London based four-piece KASMs sound like what you imagine the mood of a wasp stuck in a can of 7up might be; a little pissed off and full of E-numbers. Their live performances have come to be hailed way outside of ‘indie’ circles with their rough edges, angry riffs and dangerously sharp pop hooks. KASMS hit a nerve in peoples’ psyches. (SUPERSWEET)
Gold Teeth's songs are imbued with feelings of paranoia and suburban alienation…a popular tropical/Afrobeat flavour with an electronic pulse, lilting rhythm and Highlife guitar. The music is anthemic and joyous: If you want to place this band anywhere, it's between Blur circa Leisure and the queasy MOR of the second LP by the Specials. (Guardian)
With influences such as snake charmers, disco cathedrals and poverty,
the haunting ethereal beauty of Rhodesia’s two tracks was more than enough to propel them to 2nd place on SUPERSWEET’s MySpace New Bands Competition.
No doubt they could soundtrack many a sex and suicide flick, mixing a sense of fear and mental torture with an electronic backdrop and steady beat. (SUPERSWEET)
Layering sparse, tweaking acid house production over post-punk ESG percussive beats and chunky bass should make for a hands-in-the-air experience – and it does, but only in the sense that Detachments have taken you at gunpoint. (The Times)
