Sonic Boom Six – ‘The Boom Needs You!’ [Review]
Some of the catchiest pieces of music ever written were conceived as advertising jingles. Whether it’s Go Compare’s opera singer or McDonalds’ I’m Lovin’ It campaign, we can all think of at least one jingle that we instantly regret remembering because (in the cases above) it either makes us want to kill ourselves, or was used to sell addictive products that could potentially kill you. Thank fuck, then, that Sonic Boom Six’s PledgeMusic campaign is being pushed out into the world via The Boom Needs You! – a song that I didn’t originally plan on reviewing, but which became so lodged in my brain that I felt compelled to write these words.
Whether this is due to the fact that Sonic Boom Six make life immeasurably better and are a healthy addition to our culture, or due to some kind of Satanic subliminal message hidden behind this bouncy and masterfully-crafted ska tune, I’m not sure. All I can say is that you need to hear this song, get involved with Sonic Boom Six’s PledgeMusic campaign, and help them get fifth album Operation Boombox in the can.
Meanwhile, I’m going to see how this song sounds if you play it backwards…
