You can hear those influences straight from the off, but you can't fault Iowa's dedication and passion. They're a one-band revival team who'll bring a huge grin to many a twenty-something.

If Iowa were around during the days of Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr and non-ironic flannel. They'd be hailed as gods.

Remember the 90's? Iowa do, and they're doing a genuinely awesome take on it. This buzzes with the hooks and flash of straight up guitar rock the way the Pumpkins and Sebadoh USED to.
