Single Review
Floors And Walls - The StandFloors And Walls - The Stand

Brighton based quartet Floors and Walls are a new band on the horizon and have a whole range of influences from Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Mars Volta, Rage Against The Machine, The Streets and various different drum and bass artists. The bands sound has been dubbed as chav-core due to having fast chavish vocals and lingo over the rock music the band play.

The band released their first single 'Head Access' back in February which created a massive buzz in their home town of Brighton which helped them build up a big fan base in no time at all. 'The Stand' is the bands second single and is set to be released on the 21st May with the album following a couple of weeks after.

The opening of 'The Stand' sounds like the opening of a hardcore band and then a few moments later, Alex Adams vocals come in sounding more like Mike Skinner from the streets than a member of a rock band, but this is the fun part about Floors And Walls, they mix MC style vocals with rock music to create a fast new exciting sound. The lyrics are fun and witty as well.

The b-side on the single is a cover of the classic Beastie Boy's track 'Sabotage' which seems like the perfect song for this band to cover, it’s a good version but lacks the quality of the original.

Floors And Walls have the potential to go far and will appeal to a lot of people and will probably bring chavs and rock fans together at gigs which could be an interesting clash. If 'The Stand' doesn’t leave you with a smile on your face then there must be something wrong with you.
