New stuff from back home. The new wonder kids on the block British India (why boys). Much in the vein of the Arctic Monkeys that ‘new indi rock sound’. 20 years ago I would have loved this. It sounds good just a little one dimensional, small tempo throughout, small vocal tones. They sound English… Beasts, Jet, even The Vines have an Australian sound. As they say in say in Thailand ‘lao ta kun’ up to you.
