„Kickstart Riot“ is the first album from Swedish band Midway. Not much is known about the foursome, hailing from Stockholm. But they played a few bigger festivals, such as the Emergenza festival in Sweden. When looking at the guys, I would have actually thought that I was in for the typical Swedish Hardcore Superstar-like party sound but to my positive surprise, their music is totally different and doesn´t sound typically Swedish at all. And that´s a compliment! The guys are dedicated to 80s Rock. You can hear that they didn´t experience much of those times themselves but their music is a really awesome. Who would´ve thought that inside those guys hide real soft rockers, who do a great job here. It´s very hard to compare them to other bands. But the listener certainly gets great guitar melodies, well-played bass lies and driving drums. Plus, singer Leaf has a great voice for this style of music and he knows how to use it in the best possible way. For those, who like party sounds, I Don´t Care 2 is the right song. Considering the fact that this is a debut album, the guys really did a good job and I can only say: Listen to it, you won´t regret it.
