Iglu & Hartly & Then Boom - review


Iglu & Hartly
‘& Then Boom’


Reviewed by Matt Adcock

Ever wondered what would happen if the Red Hot Chilli Peppers made love to The Beastie Boys and produced preternaturally gift offspring…

I’d bet on them being something like Iglu & Hartly – as the ‘& Then Boom’ album hits the UK, spewing mind wreckingly catchy singles such as ‘In This City’ and ‘Violent and Young’ backed up by potential killer follow ups like ‘DayGlo' and 'Jump Out Of Your Car'...

Darkmatters rating: öööööööö (8 out of 10)

If '& Then Boom' was a woman - she'd be:


"Evan Rachel Wood!"


"yum..."

On a side note, you know you’re getting old when your sons are the ones getting you into new music!?

Meanwhile my wife is loving Ladyhawke which is pretty nice but doesn’t rock like I&H…

Check out the I&H vibe – here are the lyrics to ‘In This City’:

You came in to my life
You cannot separate yourself
You came in to my life
You cannot separate yourself

(Chorus)
And I found that round here
In this city
That I won’t disappear
In this city
I got nothing to fear
In this city,In this city

Close those doors
Close those doors now
Now, now, just keep em open
Keep em open
Yea, keep em open
I’ll keep on, keep keep on going
Taking it in so, so heavy
Take it easy son, this aint so deadly
Got keep on, gotta go on, gotta go on
Take it all with what we’ve done
Gotta push it push it push it
To the top of the building
Even when no one is feeling
It might bother you
Don’t let it
If these people just don’t get it
They can’t express it
They won’t accept it
She said its okay that they may never give you that credit.

(Chorus)
And I found that round here
In this city
That I won’t disappear
In this city
I got nothing to fear
In this city,
In this city

I’ve been down here
Down these roads
People pass through
Some stay some go
Standing here broke
Not a penny to my name
But she says she loves me all the same
I try my bestAnd you do to
And all you want is something you can move to
Everybody’s gotta get their kicks somewhere
Everybody gotta fit in somewhere
Theres, an open road
And I’m traveling down
Don’t know where to go
But I lock and load
Shoot that sky till the moon explode
Moon explode
Now we’re laying in a field
White flowers on our backs
Talking bout home
But we can’t go backI guess that’s why we left
So we could take a step
Keep moving and forget the rest.

You came in to my life
You cannot separate yourself
You came in to my life
You cannot separate yourself

(Chorus)
And I found that round hereIn this city
That I won’t disappear
In this city
I got nothing to fear
In this city,
In this city
