Here's a new 7" from a band I know nothing about, Channel Cairo. As far as I gather they're an Anglo-French quintet based in London who play emotionally expansive piano-led indie rock.

Here's a new 7" from a band I know nothing about, Channel Cairo. As far as I gather they're an Anglo-French quintet based in London who play emotionally expansive piano-led indie rock. The A side here starts out fairly promising, with a vocal refrain ever-so-slightly borrowed from Free and some tasteful tinkling, but by the end of the track subtlety goes out the window and there's some full-on Coldplay-esque epic pop bombast that for my taste seems a bit naff. On the flip we're treated to an acoustic demo of Underrated Grace, which is a bouncy little number, once again piano-led, which gives the singer a chance to show off his silky skills. Turns out he sounds a bit like him out of Gene. It's basically like that side of mid-'90s Britpop but with loads of piano. Slickly done but there's not a lot going on by way of original ideas. Interesting fact: Channel Cairo is actually an anagram of Clams Casino.
