If you have heard a British indie band at some point in the last few years, then you have heard this. Afro-beatish sounds, upbeat rhythms, clearly produced vocals, bits of guitar that will remind you of basic post rock bands (who believe that if you switch your delay pedal on, and play repetitive single notes on the high up frets, then you have the perfect sounding post rock sound (not far wrong though are they? Am I right?))

I honestly don't know where else I can go with it. Its a band for NME, maybe Artrocker, probably not Collective Zine. It's fine, unoffensive indie presumably with a design to hit it big, and there's no reason why that couldn't happen, I'd rather listen to Maximo Park though.
