Single Review: The Insect Guide – Wasted

By on Wednesday, 23rd June 2010 at 12:00 pm

So it’s time to delve back into a band who instantly displayed an enormous amount of potential. They go by the name Insect Guide, and although their upcoming LP release, “Dark Days & Nights” has been pushed back some this summer, don’t fret.

This Leeds band have a new single out, proving to be an amazing track that soars above expectations. “Wasted” proves why veteran bands such as My Bloody Valentine and The Breeders carried some fine elements. There’s a solid blast of sensible indie flowing in the band’s single here, something highly accessible and very likeable.

From the explosion of gritty guitars to the driving bass line that support the climatic vocals from breathy lead singer Su Sutton, all of this adds up to one infectious equation of a proper tune that balances itself on indie shoegaze to the all out sensibilities of pop.

There’s a massive amount of promise on the horizon for Insect Guide, and thankfully it won’t be long for the band to rise and begin their rotation around the world.
