Alarm – New Home New Life

Single Review by Mark Bayross

A resurgent Alarm have a not-half-bad new album in the shops (IN THE POPPYFIELDS) and this, the first single from it (not using an alias, crafty sods). And it’s the perfect choice for a single, comeback or not – epic U2-style stadium rock, a self-referencing optimistic theme, even some Hooky-style bass near the end.

The only disappointment is that it seems to be over too quickly, which is a compliment if ever I’ve heard one.

5 stars
