Brainwash Squad – Days Are A Maze

0
A classic story… highschool buddies decide to form a rock band…
 
They  occupy their nearest garage, and start practicing from day to night… they start building their own sound, and style… soon, they get some recognition… they open for New Model Army (2006), they play with Locomondo (2007) and they win the first prize in a music competition (Mad4Bands, 2009), while they play at the prestigious Mad Awards with Eleonora Zouganeli. That’s how the record deal with Sony becomes reality…

The cover reminds of “Clockwork Orange” and Alice Cooper, while their music is a mix of indie, alternative, ska, reggae, and punk. Just think of the Clash jamming with Greenday, and the Wailers, and you are almost there! The album is filled with positive energy, well-crafted songs, good and catchy melodies, and… freshness! It’s like a colourful brush inside the monotonous grey of the big city, and ideal companion at home, in the car, or in your iPod.

Apart, from the two singles, “Streets”, and “A Bottle Filled With Sand”, the cover of Ace Of Base’s (yeah, those guys!) “All That She Wants”, which is totally “Brainwash Squad-ified”, with something from the Greek legendary band Tripes, also stands out.
