Track of the week... Dananananaykroyd - Muscle Memory

This weeks 'Track of the week' has been written by Will Crosby, guitarist of Neon Index. Probably the only Glaswegian six piece ‘posi-core’ band you will ever hear are back with their new single ‘Muscle Memory’. This song, like their previous work, is instantly accessible and catchy as hell and features the same eccentric enthusiasm and energy that was what made their debut album, ‘Hey Everyone’ so enjoyable.

In classic Dananananaykroyd style the vocals are shared between John Ballie Jnr. and Calum Gunn (the former of which seems to have put down his drumsticks in favour of the microphone on a permanent basis now) which, during the verses gives a wonderful ‘call/response’ or ‘question and answer’ feel that coupled with their strong accents give Dananananaykroyd their instantly recognisable sound.

While their sound hasn’t changed massively there is certainly a slightly more mature feel to this song…perhaps not in the sound but the composition or the lyrics. Their new album ‘There Is A Way’ drops on the 13th June and this song is a strong statement of intent and shows what a strong force Dananananaykroyd are set to become. I think 2011 will be a good year for them.
