The band's website describes them as irreverent. They're certainly that. Any women's libber coming across Underwear would certainly have a fit. Equally, anyone bothering to listen properly to Underwear would realise it isn't meant to be taken seriously. They're a fun band. They put me in mind of rockabilly, with their bounce & energy.
The worst tracks on the album are President's Daughter & The End, and they're OK. The best? Full Steam Space Machine, Tommy-Gun, Underwear, and Good To Be Bad all vie for the spot. I'd include The Royal, except that it's too short, and there is my only criticism of the album. I'll admit that Progressive luminaries such as Rush & Dreamtheater are a staple part of my musical diet. Nevertheless, even Motorhead release albums of 45-50 minutes. This is barely 35.
There's no doubting their creativity - watch their videos on youtube for the likes of FSSM & you can't help but agree. But the album is very short, and can they sustain that standard and develop from it? Of that, I'm not so sure. Their new single, Addictive, is good. It is longer than almost all of these songs, but it's also a much slower tempo. It has repetitive lyrics, as do several tracks on this album. So, in a sense, it's a slowed-down version of the same song that makes up about half of this album. I really do hope they will develop, rather than churning out more or less the same album over & over. They're energetic, they're fun, they're not to be taken seriously. They're also "only" worth 4* at the moment. A more than solid debut that, I hope, they can build on!
