Boom Bam is the superbly crafted third release from Tess McKenna. Clever and catchy, a skilful blend of guitar pop and sophisticated garage, saturated with equal parts beauty and attitude. Your skin fizzes with her tinder dry rendition of In the Flesh. From the soaring grace of Falling Into The Sun to the cool dance-floor groove of The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face and, the strangely dislocated, Waste of Time - her vocals are flooring in sheer force and raw emotion. Boom Bam is rock and roll, black holes, celebrity, teenage time bombs, addiction, faith, sex, love and death. It's got comedy, drama and tragedy. It's the whole feckin' deal.
About this track...
‘Boom Bam is a gem. Tess deserves some of the critical acclaim surrounding Lucinda and Gillian. It’s an intoxicating brew, beautifully played by a stellar band. Boom Bam -Tess’ third album - is a compelling, challenging, interesting pop record.'
