Review by Andy Hawes for MPM
Wolverhampton-based rockers Gin Annie return with a deliciously raucous and rambunctious slice of melodic hard rock entitled ‘Jealousy’.
It is a swaggering and energetic track driven by gnarly guitars that spit and snarl, with huge slabs of layered power chords providing the bedrock for David Foster’s rich and powerful vocals.
On first listen, the first line of the immense chorus left me scratching my head thinking I’d heard something slightly similar somewhere before (it’s actually Alanis Morissette’s ‘You Oughta Know’ that I was reminded of), but the more I listened, the more I was drawn away from that and drawn into Gin Annie’s classy chorus.
With a sound that is rooted in the classic styles of late 1980s hard rock, but with a sharp and contemporary production, ‘Jealousy’ oozes enough class to prove that when it comes to defiantly energetic and melodic hard rock, the UK rock scene can more than hold its own with the competition.
‘Jealousy’ is an extremely cool single and provides a very tempting taster for Gin Annie’s upcoming second album. I admit that I’d not heard them prior to being given this track to review, but I’ve been impressed enough to search out the rest of their catalogue and to look forward to hearing what else they’ll come up with for album number two! Impressive stuff!
