The Wireless - Here BeforeHackney five-piece The Wireless are back with a follow up to the sensational “He’s So Proud.” It would be hard, verging impossible to follow up the success of such a promising debut, but the latest installment “Been Here Before” hits the same standards, reaffirming the band’s potential. Combining blues inspired garage guitars with spontaneous lyrics; “If looks could kill then musics dying/These punks should care more about what they’re buying,” the band attack generic stereotypes emerging on to the music scene. This attack is not unfounded, the band themselves providing fresh air and the energy of youth in to the current London garage rock circuit.

B Side “Give In To Me” could have led the release on it’s own. It is both catchy and musically well done, the bass being a particular highlight on both tracks – commanding of the rhythm yet subtle and not overpowering – the bassist should feel proud of his contributions.

This follow up will please and surprise those who didn’t think it possible to follow up the massively impressive He’s So Proud. The band yet again deliver on both musical and commercial avenues, making catchy singles for the radio and keeping true to their garage rock roots simultaneously.

9/10
