Estrons - You Say I’m Too Much, I Say You’re Not Enough
Published: 2:29 pm, October 03, 2018Words: Jamie MacMillan.

Estrons are a band who know exactly what they are good at, and deliver it in spades here on their debut album, 'You Say I’m Too Much, I Say You’re Not Enough'. A ferocious guitar sound, drumming that feels like a galaxy-sized sledgehammer and vocals from Tali Källström that manages to cut through all of the noise to hit you deep in the gut (and heart). If the Welsh band are renowned for their legendary live shows, well here is the perfect representation of that.

Going in for the kill straight away with the hard-hitting ‘Lilac’, this is an album that chucks you deep into a mosh pit within seconds and refuses to let you out for 33 riotous minutes. The sheer intensity that slams out of the speakers from Rhodri Daniel (guitar) and Steffan Pringle (bass) on this and the following ‘Killing Your Love’ is exhilarating. Throw in Källström’s empowering lyrics about female sexual dominance on tracks like the supreme banger ‘Make A Man’, or the raw honesty of ‘Cameras’ (a track about and for her young son), and it soon becomes an album of perfectly matched opposites, each aspect striving for dominance but always resulting in a perfect balance.

This is one of those albums where every track will be a live favourite, each bringing together a thrilling clash of sounds and styles. Best played as loud as you can possibly manage, by the time the closing trio of ‘Jesus…’, ‘Aliens’ and ‘Drop’ are finished in all their shredding intensity, you can almost feel the sweat dripping down your face. This will be the soundtrack to the best, and messiest nights out that you’re going to have all year.
