Single Review – Kasabian – You’re In Love With A Psycho 

Kasabian are back with a flash. There will be no drawn out release period as their sixth studio album For Crying Out Loud as it will be released on April 28th. They’ve already trialled one of their new tracks ‘Comeback Kid’ on FIFA 17 game released last year. Their first single release proper is ‘You’re In Love With A Psycho’. It is a buoyant track with a keen rhythm and churning rhythm section and this allows for Tom and Serge the freedom to lay their vocals down how they wish. They do this well in the verses as they mirror the arrangement, but lose this discipline slightly in the chorus. It still sounds good and will be a great live track, but perhaps this song is not as strong as it could be as it loses their key punchy component. The reception to their most recent albums has been up and down and with Serge Pizzorno rightly claiming that guitar music needs reviving, this album will serve as a test of their ability to make a huge impact outside of the festival fields and in the big bad world. A world where they garnered a mixed response. Is this the album to save guitar music? From what we’ve heard the jury is still out on that.
