- Shouting At Wildlife by Kid Canaveral
8/10 Dave Staff review, 02 August 2011
Kid Canaveral are a sprightly four-piece who hail from Fife in Scotland. They have an ear for melodies and peddle a sound that almost verges on twee. It has some nice dual vocals and some very catchy guitar riffs. Their newie has all the potential to be an indie pop classic. It's reminiscent of Teenage Fanclub I reckon but with more twee. You could definitely drink tea and quaff cream cakes whilst listening to this...mebbe on a horribly garish blanket in a park. Some of the songs have "RADIO PLAY" plastered all over them, like the song "Smash Hits" which is about the differences between a music loving couple, and the huge choruses of "On Occasion" will surely have David "Childish" Jensen (or his modern equivalent) wetting his knickers. The album is quite a joyous affair, there doesn't seem to be much introspective navel gazing going on. Almost all the songs have great energy and are direct. My only qualm with these Scots is that sometimes they have the tendency to sound a bit like a more rocking Snow Patrol...I can't believe Lightbody's influence touches people...inside. They are a promising band moving in a positive direction. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Oh, the sleeve's pretty fucking sweet too. A tuneful slice of indie pie that demands indie attention.
