SONG OF THE DAY Holy Bouncer – Anticipation

mm-xuho3Holy Bouncer are a Barcelona based five-piece with a powerful, roaring, supersonic 60’s and 70’s influenced rock sound.  To date, the band have released four official tracks and have covered a few old greats including the Rolling Stones, “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” and Leadbelly’s “Where Did You Sleep Last Night.”

The thing I like about this band is that their sound is inspired by yesteryears, but what they’re creating now takes these roots and pushes them forward to a new generation of rock-psychedelia….and anything psychedelic is completely funky in my book..

Taken from the album comes ‘Anticipation,’ a song that could easily transpire into Buffalo Springfield’s ‘For What It’s Worth’ or the Rolling Stones ‘Sympathy For the Devil,’ with its percussive intro and twanging guitar.  Vocals are gruff, raw and not necessarily what you would expect to come out of such a young singer, but that seems to be the theme with Holy Bouncer, raw, fresh and full of surprises.  Check out ‘Anticipation’ above.
