MP3 REVIEW: Mechanical Smile "Set The Spark" [single]

1 GBP to Download // Free to Stream

            When you first hear this single, your mind may rush to The Cranberries as a comparison for it.  However, as the song goes on, it kicks in and becomes quite different than that band.   I almost want to compare this to Paramore, though I am hesitant because I'm not really fond of that band.

            Mechanical Smile displays in this song a hard rocking type of vibe that borders on punk rock without you having to scream "Oi! Oi! Oi!".  They have a really killer guitar solo (Props and respect to whoever did that) and occasionally get the male backing vocals screaming to add just that little extra "You kind of have heard this already but not really" feel.   Excellent song, excellent band.
