Spank Rock - 'Energy' [Song Review]

Click here or read below for my review of the song 'Energy' by Spank Rock. It was published on Pure Grain Audio.

Rating: 7/10
Spank Rock are an American hip-hop group with a bit of electro and rock stirred with a straw. The result is a bit of a confused, but at the same time, addictive sound. 'Energy', the leading single from the group's second album Everything Is Boring And Everyone Is A Fucking Liar is a prime example of the band's unorthodox sound, but there is something within the song that keeps the listener hooked.

'Energy' possesses a slightly lacklustre verse but the highlight is the chorus which begins with an intensely repeated “I need new energy” followed by a very weak “Oh La Ah e-i-e-i-e-i-e-i Oh” before the group sharpen up and demand some more new energy.

At first 'Energy' comes across as a bit of a mess, but with each listen the song slowly but surely leeches onto the skin and does not let go.
