Review: The Man Motels - 'That's Crazy Baby'

| Single

'That’s Crazy Baby!' by The Man Motels is a mile-a-minute sonic assault filled with irresistible punk-rock energy.

The first single since 2018’s 'Quit Looking At Me' is raw and fuelled by rage. Garrith Holloway’s voice crackles with anger from the beginning as he tells his ex to get the f**k out of his life.

His sentiments are backed up by the rest of the band as they deliver a sonic onslaught that might blast holes in your ear-drums if you let the volume get too high. The bass and drums are the power of the song, driving it as it shifts from seventh gear down to third and then right back up again while the rapid-fire guitar adds a hint of menace, keeping the song on the edge of a full-blown manic episode during those seventh gear sections.

Raucous and unbridled, 'That’s Crazy Baby!' is a four-minute roller-coaster ride that’ll have your blood pounding, your bones rattling, and your ears wanting more and more.
