Where: Atlanta, Georgia
What: the spirit of the early 70’s British Glitter Rock with a heavy influence of power pop punk.
Sounds Like: T.Rex, Slade and Sweet hyperlinked with the power pop punk of All American Rejects along with their own injections of attitude adrenaline.
Though the band is clearly born out of Atlanta Georgia, once the needle hits the vinyl (or whatever turntable you are using) all bets are off. Soaked in the spirits of the English 70’s the Biters sound far from being American. Just listen to the opening chords and multi layered harmonies to hear influences of The Sweet. And after the anthem of “Let It Roll” fades let the T.Rex reincarnated fat chords of “Stone Cold Love” vibrate and roll throughout your body.
But enough of some the band’s influence as while their sound has a great throwback feel to it there is no doubting their own injections of attitude adrenaline that gives the band a sense of urgency as they celebrate their brash punkish power pop sounds. If you manage to get through the toe tapping “Gypsy Rose” without moving then please call 911…you just might be dead. That said the Biters are more that capable of showing their soft underside of their musical belly. Check out the gorgeous “Hollywood” or for that matter the reflective acoustic closer “Goin’ Back To Georgia”.
Only their second full length recording, The Future Ain’t What It Used To Be clocks in fewer than 35 minutes with 10 concise no filler tracks all under 4 minutes or less. With this kind of music it could be strongly suggested that the Biters are the antithesis of their album title as the future is very bright for this band.
New Artists coming at you all the time.
