London's Sabatta has such a diverse list of bands on their "for fans of" section in the press release for "Get Over Yourself" that they couldn't possibly sound like them all. How can a band be compared to Queens of the Stone Age, Bad Brains, Jimi Hendrix, Black Sabbath, and Parliament/Funkadelic and live up to that? But... Sabatta do. This new single has that funk meets punk side of Bad Brains while leaning more heavily into funk like Parliament/Funkadelic, the stoner/desert rock of Queens of the Stone Age, and dark guitar solos that combine Black Sabbath and Hendrix. As you can imagine, "Get Over Yourself" is a badass song that needs to be listened to. It's the kind of song that melts your mind the longer it goes on as it just keeps getting more intense and more engaging as it goes on. Sabatta are one of those bands that will blow up if there is any justice in the world.
