I’ve heard so many times how great and mighty local rawk-star hopes Stumble were. “Stumble this” and “Stumble that”. Peoplesound.com’s main band for ages don’t ya know! Well they aren’t called Stumble anymore. They’re called Intentions of an Asteroid and they’re back and better than ever with their new name and new CD, the ‘Clear Water Paranoia EP’ – a rather impressive attempt at catching some major record label interest and launching them, all asteroid like, into the big time. And, y’know what?! I think it just might work!
At times sounding like [a better version of] Antihero, IOAA have that shouty “we grew up listening to The Clash” thing going on, with coarse northern vocals chanting furiously when, all of a sudden, there are a few petrifying blood curdling screams, and then the chorus kicks in. Oh, and their choruses are syooo-perb! Big, juicy, yummy choruses that you simply can never tire of and, at the very least, require the tapping of a toe or nodding of an appreciative head!
Energetic, groping riffs; raw, sincere vocals; mind-warpingly catchy melodies and oodles of distorted bass just to top it all off and make 4 of the most promising rock anthems I’ve heard this summer. Intentions of an Asteroid, eh? Well if the intention is to blow peoples minds, this Derby four-some are well on their way…
