Scrap Iron Sun / Press

“With hard-charging tracks like “Can’t,” “Fuse,” and “I’ve Given You Everything,” the band has carved a niche for itself as a progenitor of “polished garage rock,” with some fans comparing the group’s “loud and fast” sound to the likes of the Dead Kennedys, the Black Keys and The Who. However, thanks to its frequent use of vocal harmonies and incorporation of instruments like horns, organ and banjo, Scrap Iron Sun has even found itself getting acknowledgement from one of the staple bands of classic rock radio.”

“Hi Scott and George, I liked your song "Wallflower's Lament" with its quirky style and narrative. Good use of metaphors to describe the story. I can see this song in a TV show or movie used quite effectively to describe a scene or relationship. The song was delivered with a confident vocal style with distinctive artful inflections. I also liked the bluesy arrangement (that creates a visual club atmosphere) the perfect backdrop for your lyrics and this style of song/blues. Wishing you continued success with your music, Mike Pinder”

“Scrap Iron Sun’s sound is largely rooted in the likes of the Who, Kinks, etc., with unexpected artistic decisions throughout keeping it unforgettable. “Excuses” starts with fuzzy power chords, trance-like synthesizer & vitriolic but half-serious lyrics. “Wallflower’s Lament” lives in a smoky barroom with jazzy horns & walking piano. “Better Off’s” tribal drums from Ray Brouillette, more lyrical rejection, & animal noises keep it from over-seriousness. George Condon’s lead fireworks in “Don’t Lose Your Sleep” & “Big Brother” push things up a level. “I’m Still Sane” contrasts further with recorder, syrupy lead & their most sentimental lyric. Finally, “Getting a Rusty Tan under the Scrap Iron Sun” is unique in that it’s a title track for both album and band, an instrumental benefiting from Ray’s fills & constant lead by Cleveland who quips, “Imagine surfing on molten iron pouring in a foundry.” If you’re curious what that sounds like, list”
