Bodinrocker - Roller Coaster Ride

Play LOUD! It’s Time For Those Cheap Sunglasses and Tight Jeans Again!

In April this year we loved Swede Anders Bodin aka Bodinrocker’s previous single VACATION and this latest release ROLLER COASTER RIDE is every bit as attention grabbing and, dare I say it…….FUN!

You can’t help but smile and shuffle your feet as the band combine a quality British Powerpop song with some Second Generation of Mod cool and a side helping of Indie ‘edge’.

Through out any preconceptions you may have with Swedish Pop and Rock and just live for the moment if this song comes on your radio.
The previous single VACATION makes a welcome return immediately afterwards; and the late 60’s Status Quo guitar ‘sound’ is the perfect compliment to Roller Coaster Ride. Both songs are now going to be on an album called Eye 2 Eye which will be released in early 2018.

The final two songs are brand new to me; but come from Bodinrocker’s last album ROCK IT THE RIGHT WAY, and for a bunch of Swedish musicians Bodinrocker certainly know their way around a Brit sounding Pop Song, as track #3 Space proves. Just like the two new songs on this EP it would sound like a breath of fresh air should it turn up on a radio; especially if it was a car stereo on a sunny day.
The finale Long Way Round is still on the commercial side of Rock, but a lot ‘heavier’ than the others with some red-hot guitar licks throughout.
Obviously not for everyone who regularly reads our site; but some days you just have to kick back and relive your youth don’t you…..or is that just me?
