Ajay Saggar (Bhajan Bhoy) and Holly Habstritt are Volksempfänger. Their debut album 'Attack Of Sound' beautifully captures the bleeding-heart recklessness at the core of rock'n'roll. A brilliant debut album that is co-released by two highly respected independent labels - Cardinal Fuzz (UK) and Feeding Tube Records (USA).
'Attack Of Sound' is an unapologetic swooning love letter to pop music. It's the perfect album, where dissonant and harsh guitars are juxtaposed with almost bubblegum pop. Sheets of feedback over inept tribalism and sugared by amazingly sweet vocals.
This album works brilliantly as Ajay and Holly show their innate love of classic '60s pop and psychedelia as much as The Stooges. The ghosts of Love and Phil Spector haunt the wasted grooves of 'What The Girl Does' and 'Damned And Drowned,' while the lurching punk noise mayhem of 'How We Made It Seem' resurrects the in-yer-face Detroit icons like The MC5. 'Attack Of Sound' remains a touchstone for all the people who ever believed that rock was for waking you up... equal parts Beach Boys' melody and Velvet Undergrounds' minimalism. It still provides that visceral thrill... an attack of sound!
