The first track of this CD sounded really familiar when it came on, but I'm not sure where I've heard it before. Answers on a postcard? Maybe this has just already been spun in the office, but I don't recognise the other songs... This is pretty likeable indie pop fare really. Apparently a member of Queens of the Stone Age whose name I don't recognise plays in them but it doesn't sound a bit like QOTSA. There's some really Of Montreal-esque vocal harmonies but musically it's a bit more bombastic than those guys and not as intricately composed. Phil just said it sounded really Elephant 6 and that prompted me to realise that at their more charming moments these guys sound a whole lot like The Apples in Stereo, which is no bad thing if you ask me; closer to the keys-led side of their stuff than the more Weezery guitar-led bits, though, if that makes sense. It's a bit overly busy for my taste in places, but when they do take things down to just keys, drums and vocals it's really creepy and effective. To be honest despite some charming moments I feel like it too often dissolves into a tasteless, textureless mid-paced nothingness and they have a bad habit of sounding like every other NME band from the past decade, and let's face it, who needs another Razorlight? Who even needs one? There are some nice flashes here but I just wish they'd stray from that radio rock formula a little more often.
