Hadouken! - Crank It Up

Hadouken! once again prove they are down with the kids with 'Crank It Up', a look at online culture which name checks teenage accessories like Bebo and iPod et al. The track jumps from start to finish and opens with booming a electronic noise akin to the main melody in Madonna's '4 Minutes' if you gave it an illegal substance in a seedy nightclub.

The rest of the song enjoys some more electronic wizardry, a drum beat on steroids and excitable vocals that bounce of the walls, confirming that this might not be something you would want to listen to on your own when you need that melancholic song to numb your pain. You might end up peeved at just how energetic Hadouken! seem, but then again, it might raise a little smile too.
