Another Springsteenian slab of anthemic rock.

Banger




Roaring out of the blocks with a crooning saxophone solo, The Xcerts prove their dedication to The Banger with ‘Drive Me Wild', another Springsteenian slab of anthemic rock.

‘Hold On To Your Heart' officially comes out this Friday (19th Jan), but so far we've heard more than enough to suggest it's going to be a solid gold classic. Murray and co. have mastered their Tom Petty widescreen guitar sound, and now we're treated to some delicious sax from Will from Black Peaks. Talk about hidden talents.

‘Drive Me Wild' takes the hope and vitality of ‘Daydream' and rides it off into the sunset, its earworm chorus met by a mid-song duel of saxophone and a warbling guitar solo. With Murray in full on romantic mode ("Heaven is an endless kiss" – swoon), strap in and settle down, this one will be going round and round in your head for a long time. Dillon Eastoe
