Youthful exuberance and good songs are the order of the day, and sometimes that is all you need to put a smile on your face.

Skarlett Riot are a Modern Rock quartet from Scunthorpe in the UK. Brothers Danny (guitar) and Luke (drums) formed the band with lead singer Skarlett back in 2010, while bass player Martin Shepherd completes the line-up. They have released several EPs, most recently 'We Are Brave' in 2015 and 'Sentience' in 2016. These shorter offerings have bridged the gap between 2013's full-length debut 'Tear Me Down' and their new sophomore effort 'Regenerate'. During the course of the last four years, Skarlett Riot have played numerous UK festivals and toured as support to a host of high profile acts. I've seen them several times and they certainly know how to warm up a crowd. The bio and the band themselves cite many musical influences, but if comparisons were needed, I'd probably suggest Halestorm (circa 'Love Bites' and 'Mz. Hyde') or a heavier version of Paramore (Skarlett even has a hint of Hayley Williams about her vocal style).

'Regenerate' features ten tracks bristling with energy and high impact hooks and melodies. In the main they follow a similar pattern. Up-tempo verses built around spitfire riffs and double-kick drums give way to a drop in tempo and an infectious chorus. Though there is little variation in the arrangements and song structures, there is no denying the quality of the material and performances. Subtle keyboard textures make brief appearances that enhance the sound and imbue one or two tracks with added depth and an extra dimension – 'Calling' and 'Affliction' are the best examples of this. The latter is the closest thing to a ballad, but it is still high energy and quite brutal in its delivery. Skarlett's fiery (clean) vocals suit the music perfectly and she has great power and range. There are no lengthy workouts and the four minute (or less) running times instil a sense of urgency and an explosive dynamic.

There is nothing unique or groundbreaking about Skarlett Riot but that is fine by me. Youthful exuberance and good songs are the order of the day, and sometimes that is all you need to put a smile on your face.
