Undercut – Soul Food Mother

Single Review by Mark Bayross

Bristol five piece Undercut ply a neat line in polished rock thrills, and the appallingly-named SOUL FOOD MOTHER soars along on a wave of U2-meets-Deacon Blue AOR bombast that is sure to propel them into the charts.

Somehow, though, this comes off as shiny but soulless, and the staccato riffs of B-side BUTTERFLY don’t do much to negate this suspicion, rousing though they are. The less said of saccharine ballad COMING BACK DOWN TO EARTH the better. One Maroon 5 was one too many.
