I was actually planning on posting some awesomeness from Everything Everything but someone suggested Good Shoes and I just had to skip ahead. It’s only just started playing five minutes ago, but I’m liking it. Not necessarily ‘unique’… but more of a pleasant mix between The Kooks, Kaiser Chiefs, and some English humor.
This is the first single from the next Album (No Hope, No Future), called “Under Control”
I feel like this is a cover (or I’ve know it for ages). If you know where they stole from- please let me know. It’s bothering me.
If you were doubting their musical abilities, check out the doodling around 01:20…
In general I would call this a fun band. Nice songs sufficient substance and lots of melody. Drums rumble quickly and harmonies plus doodles make a full package of English-grown Indie-Pop-Rock. I’m gonna throw in some pessimism and say they won’t make it past the second album unless they have a song that makes us forget The Kooks. Maybe that’s why the album is called ‘No Hope, No Future”…?
…but, it grabbed me at the first listen so that’s why I posted. The better songs are on their myspace, so be sure to check that out.
now back to the post on Everything Everything.
