Citing their influences as Foals, Last Dinosaurs and Two Door Cinema Club, you knew that Melbourne band Sporadic Children were only going to feature the harder side of indie rock, and that is exactly what ‘Cashola‘ is.
Fast, loud and strangely melodic, ‘Cashola’ sees Sporadic Children put together the ultimate blend of indie and rock. The guitar lines are a particular standout and switch between the scratchiness of idols Foals, and the more jangly Last Dinosaurs. The drumming is solid, featuring some heavy hi-hat work, whilst the vocals are raw, honest and delivered with gusto. The chanting sing-a-long vocals are in the same vein of fellow Melbournites Children Collide, and suit the intensity of the track well. The lyrical subject matter is perhaps all the more meaningful as every aspiring band as some point dreams of being ‘taken more seriously’ and earning more ‘Cashola’. A fun raw indie rock tune.
‘Cashola’ highlights the potential Sporadic Children have, a solid foundation from which future releases can be built. Keep them coming boys!
