DIY pop/rock outfit The Scratch’s somehow familiarly unfamiliar new single, ‘Numbers’, is a piece of wonderfully edgy pop/rock with nu-punk attitude and wholesome retro intonations. Rammed full of typically British popability but with genuine global appeal, ‘Numbers’ is great ‘dirty rockin’ pop’ as only we Brits can manage – fast, raw, homely and real!!
Beautifully raw and genuine sounding, ‘Numbers’ has that special bite to it that so many bands either can’t achieve or, wrongly, engineer out in the studio. It works very well and you just can’t help joining in with the guys here and getting yer rocks off to ‘Numbers’. With hints of The Jam, a touch of early Who, the street drive of The Clash and the ‘now’ rockin’ melodic tendencies of Green Day and Bowling For Soup, The Scratch sound vibrant and kick ass cool.
