Single Review by Mark Bayross

The much-lauded Funeral For A Friend release a double A-sided single in advance of their hotly anticipated debut album CASUALLY DRESSED AND DEEP IN CONVERSATION.

SHE DROVE ME… is possibly the more likely contender for radio airplay – its pristine production and chugging riffs underpinning a singalong Matt Davies chorus that won’t fail to set the crowds off when they play it live. BULLET THEORY is the screamier of the two, although it wins on Deftones-style melodic intensity. Hmm, it’s a close call.

Aside from the 7” (good to see tradition ain’t dead), there are two CDs to buy – each one with a video (both of which are very different), plus BBC live sessions that include THE SYSTEM and a pre-reworked JUNO.

Two very strong tracks, guaranteed to get pulses racing for that album…

5 stars
