My Week with INXS Day 5 - New Sensation

Day five of my week with INXS and today its 'New Sensation'.

This was the third single released from their album Kick. It was released in 1988.

'New Sensation' reached number 25 in the UK singles chart, so not their biggest hit, but still Top 40.

The song is quite electro pop - lots of keyboards on this one, but its the saxophone that really lifts it from hum drum 80's to something stand out. Once again, it seems to be about living life to the full, partying and this fits Hutchence vocals perfectly.

The video sees the band looking, well, quite smart actually! Hutchence has his hair back and is wearing a suit looking quite suave. They look like they are on top of a building somewhere. Not much going on in this one, just them and their instruments.

This is a good song, not their best in my humble opinion, but still catchy and worth a revisit.

Go take a listen and let me know what you think. You can check out Days 1-4 plus loads more over at My Music page - just click here. Happy listening :)
