A beautifully unique sound, and at the same time they are easy to listen to. The subtle use of effects peddles, and simple guitars (as well as synths and glockenspiels) creating incredibly catchy hooks, melodic vocals (echoed and interspersed with shouty bits) coupled with quaint lyrics ("autumn leaves, fragile as snow") make for a really compelling sound and a special band who I’m sure are just about to hit the big time. They are touring the UK throughout April, be sure to get down to it if they're near you.
