I like singers that yowl & growl like cats. The guy from Strange Boys does that, like Iggy on helium. He sounds kinda cute, like he's fronting a cool garage band but he's only 12 years old. This band grow on you like fungus. They've got a traditional sounding lo-fi thing going on with nice touches of echo & reverb.

I like singers that yowl & growl like cats. The guy from Strange Boys does that, like Iggy on helium. He sounds kinda cute, like he's fronting a cool garage band but he's only 12 years old. This band grow on you like fungus. They've got a traditional sounding lo-fi thing going on with nice touches of echo & reverb. It sounds like they use old valve equipment to record their songs, the best one of which i've just heard - the new single, 'Be Brave' It's a mid-paced number with a surfy picked guitar, a really simple drum rhythm & this smashing call & response echo from what sounds like a mini high-school choir! Oh, & occasional drunken blasts of punchy brass make themselves felt too! The whole thing struts & snakes its way confidently into your heart, leaving you tapping your knees and jigging your feet leaving you with a gormless expression of wonder just left hanging on your stupid face.................Ltd 7" on Rough Trade.
