With its tongue in cheek chorus of “you think you’re better than me? There’s nobody that will come close” ‘Egocentric’ is about looking after number one. The music comes with all the swagger to back up the lyrics. Starting with a verse that wouldn’t sound out of place on a Ramones record, ‘Egocentric’ is a glorious blend of power pop and garage rock that will hook you in instantly.
With a middle eight that’s all Queen-like synth and dual guitar solo, Death by Unga Bunga don’t seem to be afraid to push their sound a little. It’s not long before the infectious chorus comes back in though to worm its way into your head and have you singing it for the rest of the day.
If ‘Egocentric’ is a sign of how Death by Unga Bunga’s album is shaping up, it’s going to be an essential listen.
