An album that I very strongly recommend, and am intoxicated by.

Debut album for the band from Guildford in Surrey, southern England, the sextet includes a very definite USP in having twins Nathalia and Natascha Sohl contributing to the vocals.

My initial expectations of this album were not great, considering the cover illustration. My own personal preference is for a more subtle approach to these things, and opening track 'Party' is also – magnificently, actually – in-yer-face. But here is a band, playing with conviction and dynamism with a superb pop/rock-n-roll composition that immediately blows away any cobwebs and makes one sit up and take notice. 'Sea Devil' maintains the impetus in a somewhat sleazy vein (also highlighting the magnificent guitar playing that is a feature of the entire album) while 'The Hunt' wears its influences from the likes of Steel Panther and The Darkness, quite overtly.

'Kentucky Pie' mixes a rich 80s AOR vibe with (dare I say it) a more modern feel, but should still be a firm favourite. 'Rock Me' has a self-assured swagger (you'll be singing along in no time); 'Ladies' takes the tempo down and is an oh-so-wonderful semi-ballad with a great arrangement that will burrow into your brain. 'Don't Get Too Close (Squash Song)' and 'Get Me Outta Here' once again pick up the tempo, the former leading the band to be invited to perform at the National Squash Championships in Manchester in February 2013!

'Property...' really is a release that should have broad appeal from the tongue-in-cheek, good time melodic pop/rock of opener 'Party' right through to the mini epic 'Gladiator' in which everything including the vocal arrangements are so strikingly reminiscent of something Pure Reason Revolution might have recorded, and the eponymous, anthemic 'White Pigeon' with its fabulous hooks that closes the album proper (you can hear this track on the free CD with this magazine*...)

A bluesy acoustic version of 'Sea Devil' is tucked in to conclude an album that I very strongly recommend, and am intoxicated by! Go to www.whitepigeonrocks.com to score your copy now!
