They touch on The Cure's epicness, Joy Division's desolation, the Pixies' scrawling fire and Talking Heads' twisted pop, all without ever truly revealing their influences.I only discovered them this year, by trying to keep in touch with the British music scene through reviews in the UK media. There is so much good music from Britain at the moment, which rarely rates a mention in Australia.
Their latest album Do You Like Rock Music? was rated five stars out of five by The Observer and tipped to be one of the hottest albums for 2008. NME's review was amazingly 'lyrical'. The BBC just about gushed. And rightly so.
