Gallows - Staring At The Rude Bois
When one band covers a song that has previously been released there are usually repercussions and a few problems in store. British punk rock band, Gallows have decided to give it a shot, and take a modern and more urban feel on the Ruts single, 'Staring At The Rude Bois'.
The track begins bouncy and remains that way, grabbing the listener with the repetition of the title in an anthem manner, along with "never surrender", making the chorus and surround lyrics very catchy. The vocals are perfectly fitting for such a tune. Towards the end of the tracks I found myself lost in the rap, trying to make out if I were still listening to the same tune. I was, and it turns out to be quite decent, maybe not for the fainthearted though.
I can see this one being a track that is going to cause havoc on the dance floor and at gigs.
