Single Review – Kasabian – Are You Looking For Action?

If you are looking for action, Kasabian’s second track to preview For Crying Out Loud – released early May – is a decent place to start. All 8 minutes and 22 seconds of Are You Looking for Action? is filled with mellow psychedelic rock, opening with an infectious bassline and shuffling percussion, and continuing in a vein of unrelenting funk. The reverberating vocals help give the track a smooth flow, only to add to the kaleidoscopic feel and variations of the eclectic single. And though the track follows a more pop-centric edge, compared to the likes of their other triumphs Bumblebeee and Club Foot to name a few, it remains classically Kasabian in its sharp guitar accents and its ability to keep the listeners engaged via its unpredictability, despite its lengthy duration. It’s not Kasabian’s most ground-breaking release, and certainly doesn’t have the effect or status as some of their back catalogue, but it makes for something a little different and something pretty fun.
