9/10 Harrison Twinn Customer review, 16th May 2016
Rectifier by Spring King is one of my absolute favourite tunes coming from their brand new album, Tell Me If You Like To. Much like the album name, Rectifier sees the band at their most fun, and if you ever heard this at a festival - one that is up there with Glastonbury - you would be dancing to Tarek Musa's jumpy drum beats, even if the song's just in your head.
The introduction to this track starts with a funky bassline that grabs you by the shirt and drags you into the sunshine for your next spontaneous barbeque before taking you into a track that has you bouncing to the catchy riffs that run all the way through until the end. Musa's ability to drum and provide vocals harkens back to the Phil Collins years of '...But Seriously', coupled with a melody akin to that of The Smiths earlier work, but has that summery feeling that has a tongue-in-cheek message for those who want to get it on for the summer. Rectifier is a stand out track for the band that will no doubt take them to new heights in the coming years.
