North by Northwest – Ambulance

Winner of this week’s Official DOA Band of the Week That’s Named After An Alfred Hitchcock Film, North By Northwest present a fervent waltz-beat tune about being upset or something and how hard it is to sing this song. Not as hard as listening to Satellite Down, I bet.

The lyrics may need a sound dosage of get-over-it, but it’s sung with verve and conviction that you are almost ready to believe them. The chorus has a resounding driving beat, and it has that nice change of tempo that really gives it some impact. That chorus is stadium ready.

There hope for the future in this band. The song writing provides hints of something that could be special. Thousands of fans are waiting for that special song, which is somewhere in this band. They just need to find it.
