Remember Britrock? Of course you do. I was only about 15 when Terrorvision, Therapy?, Symposium and The Wildhearts were storming the charts, but I remember it like it was yesterday.

It would appear that this latest grunge boom has brought a whole new set of Britrockers out of the woodwork, including this waspy Essex quartet The Bohicas. 'The Swarm' is a fast paced and slickly produced number with lots of words and some nicely buzzy guitar tones that do a really fun and dumb two-note harmonised thing at the end of the chorus. There's a cowbell breakdown too. I don't get to say that every day.

I'm not trying to be punny when I say it reminds me quite a lot of Britrock nearly-wases The Beekeepers. Those aforementioned Britrock bands are never far from my mind listening to it either. B-side 'XXX' is a bit more post-punky and spiky, heading into Cable or Elastica territory if we're going to keep the Britrock comparison going. I'm happy to hear that the horrible buzzy guitar tone wasn't just limited to the insect-themed A side.

If you're yearning to hear some pop-rock that sounds like it was made in 1998, this is just the single for you.
