Superhalo – Bang!Bang

Superhalo – Bang!Bang
Vintage Records – 2016
Rock, Grunge, Stoner, Desert
Rated: ****

Next up is a Polish quintet from a little village called Porażyn not far from Poznan. They’re called Superhalo and released their second album Bang!Bang a few months ago. On it they explore the universe of grunge, stoner and desert rock. Often coming across as the Polish answer to Queens Of The Stone Age. And guess what, they do this riposte to the Palm Desert motherfuckers damn good. Perhaps missing a bit of gravitas or pizzazz, they definitely aren’t without style or blatant 100 percent copies. Although some tracks or openings do mirror certain Queens songs in a big way. But in fact, after a few times around the bend songs like Soma, Danger!Poison, Catching Tides and God Awaits Me Across The River worm their way into your head and refuse to leave it. Highly robotic and full of quirky little cul de sacs these songs show their definite love for the road paved by Josh Homme. Lyrics in both Polish and English combined with the big wave sound make the Bang!Bang record one hell of a ride. A speedy voyage through a Polish desert filled with a new take on everything we love from that hot place on the other side of the ocean. Check out Superhalo and be amazed by cirrus like glares and sunny rock flares that is Bang!Bang…
