‘Play Pretend’ is the new single from Madus, who state this song as ‘sure to elicit a head bob and shoulder sway’ out of everyone who listens, so you better be shaking those particular limbs right now. These guys like to play a kind of Garage Rock that likes to swing it’s hips rather than a cat, and it’s really quite good.
Frantic guitars, thunderous drums and a massive like of disco-flare create a seriously groovy song in ‘Play Pretend’. Madus have done a wonderful job of adding a sweet slice of swing into their hard-edged sound, and I absolutely cannot get enough of it. The song is all systems go from the start, and the end leaves me wanting to restart it all over again. What a fantastic song this is.
