This is quite a piledriver of a song in some respects, with an avalanche of thunderous drums and a stuttering, robust guitar riff. The production is suitably huge too, making the chorus soar high despite lyrics such as "what am I to do, I can't survive on my America... is it just a waste of time?". Many voices singing in unison helps provide this power and it makes you sit up and listen. 'Amerika' has a definite anthemic quality too, and seems destined to be a live favourite. It all feels very much like a statement of intent, and Wintersleep may just have spent the past four years ensuring that when they do return, they'll be bigger and better than ever before.
