In this edition of T.L.M.T’s song of the week feature The Mixed-Tape we turn our attention to the Pacifics’ new single ‘Say You Love Me’.
‘Say You Love Me’ carries with it all the upfront no frills raucous sound of early beat and garage-rock music. Evoking an era when having a song last more than three minutes was seen as pushing it and getting to the chorus in the shortest time possible was a must, the Pacifics simply get in, get out and leave a lasting impression in their wake.
The guitars thrash, the vocals screech and scream, and the drum beat rattles and thumps throughout the single’s minute and a half running time as the Pacifics say everything they want to say, leaving little room for anything else.
A suitable straight to the point return from the Pacifics, ‘Say You Love Me’ is a welcome slap to the face of the Irish music scene.
