Single Review – Thunder Jackson – Guilty Party

What exactly is Thunder Jackson? the puzzled female voice at the start of Guilty Party questions. Well, you’re about to find out. Thunder Jackson are the new kids on the block, and judging by debut single Guilty Party, they’re set to make quite the name for themselves. In a record filled with slick pop, syncopated drums and flickers of funk reign, and the vocals simply melt into the instrumentalism. The lyrics deliberate doing something wrong to hurt their friends, though any sort of upset doesn’t translate in the infectiously good hooks, or the irresistible hand claps. It’s a jovial tune that sets the Wales/Oklahoma duo up for great things.
