Amida - are you on fire? (Dufflecoat)

Amida's 7" EP for Dufflecoat Records is poppy and punky. Side A's songs "Are you on fire" and "Uncross your fingers" are short and energetic guitar pop thrash with catchy melodies and an infectious urgency.

On side B things are more varied but no less lovely, "Absolute reality" has some lovely pop tones as it sweeps along. "Soft spot for Catholics" is more mellow with a minimal guitar backing. Finally "Hoods chapel" ends the EP with a stomping upbeat number. Amida do not break new musical ground but do the basics oh so well, and quickly.
