Single Review
Pendulum - The Other SidePendulum - The Other Side

Pendulum are currently enjoying their most successful year to date, their current album 'In Silico' debuted at number 2 in the album chart and has already reached gold status, the two single releases 'Granite' and 'Propane Nightmare' have proved to be successful within the singles chart, and it seems like the band are forever on the road touring across pretty much every city in the UK and playing pretty much every major festival in the UK from the recently played Project Revolution, Download and T In The Park festival to the forthcoming festivals Reading, Leeds and Creamfields, which is some achievement to be able to play a wide choice of festivals which is mainly due to the bands cross-over music appeal.

If a summer of festivals and near chart topping single and album releases weren’t enough for Pendulum the band have now confirmed that they will be playing the ITunes Festival gig on the 28th July and on the same day they will also release their new single 'The Other Side', a single that is bound to follow in the footsteps of the bands previous single releases.

'The Other Side', starts off with a slow dance introduction that gets louder and more upbeat over time until it reaches its peak of proper big meaty synths, the type that are bound to batter your ear drums if listened to at full volume, vocalist Rob Swire's vocals sound as strong and clear as ever, but verge onto robotic territories in places during the song. 'The Other Side' isn’t the strongest single release from Pendulum, but it is another perfect example of the bands clear crossover sound of electronic dance music meets rock.

At the moment Pendulum can’t do anything wrong, they are currently enjoying a lot of success and it’s pretty clear that Pendulum fever is going to run well into 2009 especially when the band are touring from now right up until Christmas and keep releasing new successful singles at a steady pace.
