No Hope In New Jersey - Invaders (Of My Space) (Infectious)
UK release date: 25 October 2004
When I heard that these young bucks were to have a sound that is comparable to that of the Queens Of The Stone Age and the Foo Fighters I couldn't wait to hear what efforts would be produced with crunchy guitars sounds and ear opening harmonies in order to justify the compliment.
From my first listen of this new internet download offering from the No Hope In New Jersey boys I was delighted to find my expectations for a big sounding new band were superbly backed up by their music excellence. Vocalist/guitarist Andy Garrett compliments the comparisons to the QOTSA with a dryer younger version of Josh Homme's vocals.
Invaders (Of My Space) is an infectiously catchy straight forward rock song that has all the ingredients to identify that this is not going to be the last great single produced by these guys. Yet another shining example that their label Infectious have an unbeatable talent for turning out some of the best bands of their genre from the UK and Ireland.
