BOUNCE album reviews and features

September 27, 2016

From reviews so far….

“the band still have a passionately political edge, and Bounce is a worthy addition to their canon” **** Record Collector

“Rooted in dubby pop and embellished with punchy horns, it captures the Birmingham group’s maiden rebel sound” *** Mojo

“one of the most musically diverse bands to come out of the multi-racial, multi-cultural explosion that made British pop music” ***** UKMusicReview
