The Gaslight Anthem – The 59 Sound (Side One Dummy) 29/06/2009

June 22, 2009 by  


New Jersey’s favourite sons of Springsteen The Gaslight Anthem seem set to continue on their path to world domination, with the next single to be lifted of their second album. The album?s title track, The 59 Sound, is once again a heady mix of New Jersey hardcore and indie sensibilities, resulting in welcome slice of classic Americana.

As Brian Fallon spins his tale of broken hearts living fast and dying young, Rossamilla?s guitar remains visceral throughout, but succinct enough to not drown out Brian?s earnest vocals. With a rousing power pop chorus the 59 Sound will surely become a soundtrack to the lives of those suffering from a little teenage disillusionment.

With a hectic summer schedule, which see?s them play almost every festival and support boy hood hero Bruce Springsteen in Hyde park, the TGA should be sitting pretty come the back end of the festival season.
