Mia Klose, the Swedish bombshell of 80s rock, has arrived in the 21st century.
This is a great rock record, and Mia’s vocals are incredible. I can’t think who she reminds me of vocally, but she could easily stand up against Lita Ford, Joan Jett , Janet Gardner etc... The music backs up the vocals pretty much perfectly.
Mia's vocals are powerful and controlled, backed by heavy guitar riffs and structured songwriting.
"London’s a Heartbreaker" and "City of Rock" are both stellar tracks on the album with their 80’s power riffs and eccentricity.
They give a great taste of this country's electric atmosphere.
My favorite track on the album is "Living for Tomorrow". The first couple of notes always remind me of "Paradise City" by Guns N' Roses.
Lyrically, this is a very powerful song and brings great inspiration to anyone having a bit of an off day.
The guitar on the track "Mama" personifies classic rock music which can be tricky to recreate in modern times. But with Klose's vocals and style, it creates a perfect harmonic rhythm and excellent song.
The track that I am most looking forward to hearing live is "You Drive Me Crazy". The sensual guitar riffs provide a great get up and dance vibe and demonstrates Klose’s vocal range at its best.
Mia Klose is an unexpected great surprise from the devalued Female Fronted Melodic Hard Rock field.
"London" is a is a very strong album, and it’s classic rock approach is going to appeal to a great many people. As a building block from which to build a music career, this stands as a great foundation, and I feel that this young lady is only going to improve with age.
It's one of those albums that will get under your skin and animate you in some way or other...
After the first listen, I am not surprised anymore that Mia and her band were chosen among dozens of new acts to be part of the upcoming 'HRH AOR festival' in Rotherham UK in 2013.
