No doubt You'll think of Jesus and Mary Chain and Velvet Underground once You give a first listen to Silver Rocket, - three guys from Ferrara, Italy, - first debut demo.
Coordinates detected (not for nothing, They directly cite the above mentioned as influences), - this demo will bump You into a dirty noise'n'roll (Unfair games) half-hour with loads of post-punk (Crank it up), where A Prerogative starts with the same chords of The Troggs' Anyway That You Want Me (later made more famous by Spiritualized's cover) before reaching a more personal pop songcraft through monotone riffs, mics pre-saturation, and buzzing guitar feedback (what if they let it break free.., - I bet it wouldn't hurt at all), while Victor and Walked Away have the right mid-tempos to play with fuzzy noise and shut off your amp at loud volumes.
This demo sounds like a lesson learnt, - not innovative, yet pretty enjoyable and even memorable (Crank it up, Unfair Games): - now They made Theirs the rules of genre, I would be more than curious to hear what They may pop-up with in a next full-lenght record.

Senza dubbio penserete subito a Jesus and Mary Chain e Velvet Underground ad un primo ascolto dei Silver Rocket, - tre ragazzi da Ferrara, qui alla demo di debutto.
Una volta riconosciute le coordinate (non per niente, sono Loro i primi a citarle quali influenze), - questa demo Vi butta in una dimensione di mezz'ora di sporco noise'n'roll (Unfair games) con cariche di post-punk (Crank it up), dove A Prerogative inizia con gli stessi giri della Anyway That You Want Me dei Troggs (poi resa più famosa tramite la cover degli Spiritualized) prima di raggiungere una scrittura pop melodica più personale tramite riff mono-toni, - microfoni in presaturazione, e feedback ronzanti di chitarra (che magari, se lasciati andare un pò di più, mica facevano male), mentre Victor e Walked Away hanno i giusti numeri di midtempo per giocare con del fuzzy noise e mandare in tilt gli ampli a volumi alti.
Questo promo suona come una lezione ben imparata, - non innovativo, ma al contempo godibile e anche memorabile qua e là (Crank it up, Unfair Games): ora che han fatto proprie le regole del genere, sarei più che curioso di sentire come si evolveranno le cose su un disco.

not yet, probably nobody cares, or nobody cared enough to tell something. Also: nobody reads komakino.
