SANTA CRUZ: ”We Are The Ones To Fall” (single)
Label: Spinefarm 2014
Review by Kimmo Toivonen
The new single from Finnish rockers Santa Cruz doesn't offer any drastic changes of style, the band continue to deliver their 80'ies influenced sleazy hard rock to the masses. This new song has some similarities to Crashdiet, not to mention the usual suspects, GNR and Crüe etc. It's an energetic rocker with a good chorus. Vocalist/guitarist Archie's pronounciation has improved, the "finglish" accent that was occasionally evident on the first album ha pretty much disappeared. What's more, he has fine-tuned the Axl-influenced "cat-in-heat" shierking, it isn't quite as overbearing as on the first album! Good stuff, I'm looking forward to the album number two.
