Portsmouth based Seething Akira have been around since 2009 and with a couple of EPs and singles already out in circulation, their new single, 'Airstrike' is following in the footsteps of some quality material.

For those unaware of the band before, if you like bands as diverse as The Prodigy, Senser and Enter Shikari then this is a band you should really take note of.

The track on the whole is very accessible (with the exception of some of the looser English expressions) so if you haven't heard the band before this is a great jumping off point. Drummer Stu Radcliffe holds down the complex beat at the back but never disappoints as the track progresses and the vocals from Kit Conrad are clear and concise with the vocals from Charlie Bowes adding a bit extra meat to the sound.

Towards the end, it's Bowes who comes into his own with the synths leading the way during the extended instrumental section before a quick blast of the chorus brings the track to a final end.

Of course, over and above the song, you have the addition of the fantastic promo video with the band throwing caution to the wind and really making the best (though not entirely serious) video they could as they present their unique take on the Mixed Martial Arts sport as they don pink body suits as they undertake body slams, doughnuts in their own inimitable style as they come up trumps with an absolutely classic video!

With a support tour with American funk metal/thrash Metal band Mordred covering the UK and Europe starting later this week, now is the time to experience the Seething Akira live experience and I'm pretty confident that not only will they give the headliners a good run for their money but they will also convert a few "non-believers" in the process.
