Following up impressive single The Wave, alternative indie rock band Scout Killers have produced another slice of thickly emotive temptation with new single No Reason. Complete with video, the release is a smoking gun of a song, a track which basks in the success of its hazy persuasion and blues soaked captivation, its breath visibly enriching the air with pride from the contagion it has caused.

Consisting of the current line-up of vocalist Scott Cox, guitarists Beau Stevens and Julien Morrez, drummer Chris Phillips, and bassist Pierre Frankie Lee Muslimani, the South West based UK band first found a grip on the attention and acclaim of the media and fans with the EP We Cage the Storm, the release which bears the new track. A successful tour across the UK only enhanced their reputation with The Waves bringing even greater potency to their stock, and now with No Reason the sense that the band is about to trigger something major for themselves is hard to dismiss.

Opening with a rasp of guitar and brewing sonic beckoning the song expels a big breath before striding into a tempered yet eager stroll with the vocals of Cox seizing every syllable and intent of his lyrics with an earnest purpose and expressive lure, whilst around him the guitars of Stevens and Morrez flame with acidic and magnetic heat. The soulful blues licking of the ear ignites the senses for a keen welcome to the increasingly compelling vocals and equally enriched melodic temptation. The rhythms of Phillips and Muslimani guide the song with at times an understated air though both have a clear stance within the track, but also certainly the basslines bring shadows which add depth and caution to the fire burning around them.

No Reason is a thrilling track with a riveting video as a companion, more importantly it enforces the declaration that Scout Killers is a band to watch and has a very promising horizon ahead of them.
