Sixty Miles Ahead: Blank Slate (EP)

New Italian band Sixty Miles Ahead play modern rock and I have to be honest and say that modern rock is by no means my chosen genre. I can very much leave it rather than take it, however, Sixty Miles Ahead have produced a pretty tasty EP which by the very definition of EP doesn't outstay its welcome and in "Dance" they have produced a song which is, as the cliché goes, worth the price of admission on its own thanks to a swaggering groove that makes the listener want to well, dance.

Perhaps the strangest aspect of the EP is how much vocalist Sandro Casali sounds like Paul Heaton of the Beautiful South on the ballad "A Place" (does the Beautiful South reference work outside of the UK?) There are five quality songs on Blank Slate and other than the terrible artwork I recommend it.

Track Listing:
1) Polite Conversations,
2) Dance
3) Chances
4) Under my Skin
5) A Place
