Here’s a new EP that will excite lovers of the Power Pop Rock N Roll music we have been endorsing on Power of Pop.
The name of the band is It’s Karma It’s Cool and the EP is called Hipsters and Aeroplanes and the music featured is mainly pop-rock with a rich blend of different melodic rock styles that came to prominence in that special epoch of the 1960s to the 1990s.
For music fans in the know, the immediacy of the six tracks here will hit home and linger for quite a while. The distillation of classic pop-rock genres like jangle, Britpop, power pop, sunshine pop et al is well achieved to produce a pleasing result.
The range of influences picked up upon deeper inspection will be of interest to like-minded fans. From The Soft Boys to R.E.M., from The Who to Guided By Voices, from The Kinks to Blur, Hipsters and Aeroplanes is a “retro-delic” (to borrow from Robyn Hitchcock) delight that bears up after repeated plays.
… still there’s more …
