They may be over a decade into their career and have three albums to their credit, but The Senton Bombs show no signs of slowing the pace or going soft on this five tracker. They play hard rock music, the likes of which proliferated in the 80s but isn’t nearly as common any more. But they’re by not about big hair and tight spandex. They’re all about driving guitars and kicking out the riffs. They’re all about rocking. And they do, in multiple shades.
‘Phantom High’ is fast and furious, a powerhouse piece of hard rock with punk energy. There’s a touch of the Undertones about the anthemic ‘Lights Over Phoenix’ and they’re deep in US rock territory on ‘Black Chariot’, landing somewhere between Bon Jovi and ZZ Top. It ain’t revolutionary, but there’s something refreshing about their no-frills, no-messin’ approach.
