King Size – Guess It [Go Down]

Using a double entendre to invoke interest in your band was hard to resist for the Pozzo brothers; as was christening their second full-length album, Guess It.

As it happens, guesswork is the last thing that the listener needs to worry about; as the Italian’s influences are painstakingly obvious: punchy, alternative rock (ok, indie) with infectious, radio-friendly, choruses. For a band that doesn’t take itself too seriously, light-hearted jangles are probably the way to go; however, there’re an awful lot of bands – most notably British – who have milked this formula to death (circa 2004 and beyond); and for this reason alone, Guess It should be avoided.
