All Over This Town





Damn, Brighton, England has got it going on! Once known solely as the land of dance superstar Fatboy Slim, Brighton is now home to vibrant rock acts like Electric Soft Parade, Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster, and The Upper Room. The latter have a brand new single called "All Over This Town" and a very interesting story behind the tune. "I wrote that on Christmas Day," recalls band frontman Alex Miller. "I wrote it between main course and dessert. It was really hot in the kitchen (and) that drove me away." How many other artists have an anecdote like that about their debut single? And how many other artists have debut singles that ooze as much class as does "All Over This Town?" Falling somewhere between The Smiths, The Frank and Walters, and The Strokes, The Upper Room have delivered in spades on their initially offering, providing listeners with a glimpse into quintessential English guitar pop. If this is the starting point, imagine how high they can climb. Look out world, The Upper Room has arrived and is preparing for ascension.
