The One Hundred are a band who I have kept my eye on ever since I saw them support Yashin back in April. Having seen them again at Sonisphere, I knew they were definitely on to the next big thing. Their debut EP ‘Subculture’ is to be released on September 1st and I was lucky enough to get my hands on it early. With a year in the making ‘Subculture’ is an absolute tiumph for The One Hundred. Creating a unique sound which somewhat reminds me of a mixture of Enter Shikari and old-school Gallows, there is no doubt that they are onto something special.

The opening track ‘NO FKX’ sets the standard of the EP from the beginning. Starting off with a grime melody and breaking out into metalcore elements, The One Hundred sure know how to set the record straight. Heading into a song which we all know ‘Breed’ (and if you don’t, you’re missing out), Subculture couldn’t get any better. Breed mixes a range of electronic, hip-hop, grime and metalcore, fusing these together to create a new unique, wonderfully refreshing sound. They’ve sure got one thing right though. They are definitely ‘the new breed and the new generation’ of music.

The stand-out tracks on the album are two of my favourites ‘Tale Of Two Cities’ and ‘Downfall’. Heavily infused with grime influences, these tracks are ones that just make me want to have a little dance. The instrumentation of these two songs goes together perfectly creating the ultimate anthem.

The One Hundred have been lucky enough to manage to create a complete new genre of music, making them a band who are not only one to watch out for, but one who will continue to surprise and take over the entire nation.
