6/10 Vern Customer review, 7th October 2013

Poor old Good Shoes. I always find it the saddest when it's a stomping, rocking and joyous indie band that crumbles into obscurity rather then those cold ones with monotonous sounds that have no emotion. Whatever your gripes with indie bands from the noughties (I had that so called 'word') leave them at the door. I think we can leave that anti indie thing behind now and try to just listen if the music is any good. So looking back at Good Shoes's album 'No Hope, No Future' from 2010, it's a curious collection of roaringly fun and ill and meek.
Singles like 'The Way My Heart Beats' and 'Under Control' are bleeding, sweaty, house party indie rock that is just fun. There is a Two Door Cinema vibe here with a similar hectic energy which is engagingly fun. The lead singer's voice is just crackin' and what really makes these tracks pretty great.
There are also tender, Kooks style moments like 'City By The Sea' which should have had a little more success quite simply. A really delightful little song which is emotional, affecting and you'll soon be singing along.
These songs deserve attention and love. Time may have got the better of them but I wish that there is hope and there is a future for a band a little overlooked.

I'm off to listen to 'City By The Sea' again, what a cracker.
