This debut album was recorded and written under the direction of producer Erik Mårtensson (Eclipse, W.E.T). The production sounds thoroughly modern yet keeps the spirit of the 1980´s alive, with the record likely to appeal to fans of bands such as Danger Danger, Vixen, Dokken, Warrant, Treat etc
“We want to entertain and be the soundtrack of the party – it’s all about foot-stomping, head-banging tracks that make you want to get up and dance and drive your car much too fast. My favourite track other than the single ‘Change’ is ‘Playin’ to Win’, it always gets me in a good mood. Making this record with Erik was a wild ride and I hope you will ENJOY THE RUSH!” – Tåve.
Frontiers / Adrenaline Rush certainly selected the correct song to pick as first choice for a single as its the stand out song on the debut album. A fast paced, energetic and frenetic number which ticks the right boxes – decent riff and a great chorus. Hot on the heels of the quality of ‘Change is opener “Black and Blue” a modern day anthem with great structure and layered vocals adding to the experience for the listener. After Generation Left Behind the quality from here on in waivers a little; and songs like ‘Girls Gone Wild’, ‘Hit You Like A Rock’, and ‘Want It All’ are easily forgotten. ‘Oh Yeah’ definitely takes more than a passing resemblance to Leppard circa Hysteria era, and ‘Playing To Win’ has a folky, Thin Lizzy vibe to it.
I have great admiration for a set of young guns that not only want to play, but are influenced by bands like Dokken, White Lion, Danger Danger from the 80s, especially as there are other and lets face it, probably easier ways of making your way in the music industry
