Shakedown Stockholm – Who Say I? – Track Review.

Latest track Who Says I? is my prolonged overdue encounter with Shakedown Stockholm, and for a six piece who are ceaselessly ‘touted’ as rock, conflictingly all I can construe is an undefined, illusive elegance.

Tainted melodies; gristly, quelled guitar work and galvanizing drums; evidently, that radiating rock influence resides profoundly entrenched within the musicianship. So, why oppose its unshakable rock tag? Well hold on, I’m getting there – the irrefutably distinguished component here is the voice; take the enchanting authority of Siouxsie Sioux, supplement with hypnotic Cocteau Twins harmonies and not only do you get the silky grace of Shakedown Stockholm (whose vocalists coincidentally are also twins) but personally, you achieve complete isolation from any orthodox musical classification. In one word, unique.
