"The Golden Republic are a rock band from Kansas City. They are representing the new "KC Sound" and bringing it to the people. The Beatles and David Bowie influence them. The songs are truly great. They have a big fanbase in the Midwest. "She's So Cold," sounds like glam rock, as "I'll Do Anything" sounds a little like Brian Jonestown Massacre. Peter Katis has produced this. Katis has worked with Interpol and Mercury Rev. There are a bunch of rock and new wave influences on this record. The phrasing of "Robots" reminds me of a song by Ambulance ltd. The Golden Republic are a cool band, like The Killers, who have grown up with a lot of good records, but they are not from New York City. They probably had more time to work on their songs. For me, half of the deal depends on the live show. A bad record could be overlooked if the band can still shine onstage. Sometimes cool records in the studio can't be worked out properly onstage. There is no dynamic, no talent, and no performance. Hopefully we can all see The Golden Republic and judge for ourselves.
