Oh lawd that drum intro is so bloody tasty, looks like we’ve got some seasoned musicians here folks, better be on our best behaviour!
Midwich Cuckoos is a name that’s been floating around for a good while, so I was really excited when they first joined the website as I’ve needed a reason to invest some time into some new bands. This was the perfect excuse to finally sit down and discover this fantastic band i’d seen floating around the scene over the years.
Ranging from throat blistering hardcore punk/metal to beautifully executed ska/acoustic tracks with all the lovely fillings in-between. Midwich Cuckoos have a defining sound that makes them stand out from the crowd in ways that will please most listeners to some degree. Their most recent full length release is proof of the bands comfort in their ability and a confidence to experiment with elements that wouldn’t traditionally be used in this genre of music. Its rare to come across a band that tick pretty much every box and could adapt to every situation if needed, without sacrificing continuity, integrity or musical identity. I’m incredibly impressed with their diversity and broad range of talent across multiple genres, it’s almost unfair!
I’ve really enjoyed what i’ve heard and would love to get them on a show sometime, I’m itching to hear them in a live setting.
