Town - Original Design Cover

These initial signs are good

This four-song introduction to Newport’s crappily named Town (yeah, good luck searching for that one online) is a promising set, heavily influenced by snarling mod and punk. Think The Clash, The Jam and The Undertones, but… all shiny and well produced. The ideas aren’t especially new, and their credible influences are watered down with plenty of saccharine pop, but fortunately the choruses here are big enough to take the strain, especially on lead single ‘Eighteen’. Town are going to have to work hard to differentiate themselves from bands like The Enemy, but these initial signs are good.
