BAD DAYS
:: Exit State ::
20 July 2009 / No Label Required / King Prawn Records / 5 Trk CD
By Emily Slowlie

East Lancs may not sound like the sexiest of places for your band to hail from, but Exile State rock like they’re long time residents of LA. “Bad Days” is a convincing combination of new rock and charging post punk, with the dials set beyond the pulsing throb of hard charging modern rock n’ roll. Exit State have the harmonic strategies of 90’s alternative-Britrock and the widescreen attack of sub-metal, independent, underground guitar music. “Saviour” trundles along with a steam powered series of hammered down chords, whilst “Death Of A Rock Star” seems built for your local stadium, stretching itself between quiet and loud, with the notion that cigarette lighters and head banging gestures will be needed in equal measures.
