The Generator!

Release a stunner of a debut, connect with the masses care of your explosive single, and then quietly fade away. This is what I know of Elastica – a British quartet responsible for catchy, upbeat, and pop-oriented tracks with a true kick. Hip, yet totally approachable, no matter whose ears the short and sexy sounds fell upon.

One morning, while at work in my – we’ll say office – one of my co-workers walked in, started bobbing her head and tapping her foot. With a jubilant smile and with an energetic tone, exclaimed, Who is this?! Simply, it was Elastica’s debut. This woman, an avid fan of the arts, said she needed this record for tomorrow. This group had that immediacy in their sound. And I did comply with her wishes. Her life is now complete.

From their follow-up to their self-titled debut, I give you one minute and 50 seconds of freak out. A staccato delivery from our front woman with her counterpart assisting harmoniously; driving, playful guitar work; and a pace that one can only sustain for under 120 seconds. Even a small Trunk Full Amps vibe interspersed.
