Ripping off ideas since 1985 I’ve decided that I’ll follow Lisa‘s lead and dedicate every Monday to a band I’m currently listening to at the moment; I meant to do this post last Monday but for whatever reason, I couldn’t be bothered.
It wasn’t until listening to this band on the way to a comedy gig last Thursday where the idea flared up again. (A comedy gig where a comedian tried to make fun of me and I ended up getting a bigger laugh than he did all night. Don’t try and match wits with ‘Ard Pete.)
This band came into prominence about a year ago and I only heard about them about a month ago. Proving that not everything from Las Vegas is a piece of shit (The Killers an exception), this four piece indie rock band has their own unique sound that I’m a massive fan of.
If you watch some of the live videos of them, you’ll notice the front man bashing the crap out of a massive drum, couple that with some deep bass and you’ve got something exceptional.
The first song I heard from these guys was called Radioactive, which I first heard when I watched a fan made video for Tom Hardy (In my 10 Lots Of Randomness post)
I’d be lying if I said that I don’t still listen to this on a daily basis, it’s the first song I listen to when I drive to work, it manages to put me in a happy disposition while I’m stuck in traffic.
Impressed with this song I sought out to listen to others from their album “Night Visions” and I came across On Top Of The World, a song that actually makes me feel on top of the world when I listen to it:
Listen to that and tell me you don’t enjoy the harmonies! I listened to this when they told me I had a job, which meant money would soon be rolling in. *rubs finger and thumb*
Safe to say this is a band to watch in the future, hopefully when they become bigger they’ll start to tour the UK and I’ll get to see them live. (Side note: Seeing Muse next month!)
I’ll leave you with this last song, called “It’s Time” and hopefully this will convince you all to go and buy (illegally download) the album!
