Great stuff. Worth tagging along for the groove alone. Love the guitar work and the pounding rhythm.

The song could be a little more than the chant you get but it's a good chant.

The band has been around on Soundcloud for years, so, reformed, rebranded?

Certainly reformed

Great song. And yeah I get the Beta Band thing, though this band is far tighter. Also reminding me of Django Django. Driving and melodic, with that sweeeet guitar. Love it.

Not my sort of thing but I can appreciate the good musicianship.

I didn't get my invite to the prom but here I am. Well there's lots of intro here now isn't there? The first bit of guitar sounds too remote with the flanging and delay but really, more importantly, start the song and skip all the prologue. The vocals are quite good IMO and the lyrics/melody/phrasing are working very well. The drums and bass in the pocket and sticking with it--the tone on both is great. The bass movement away from the tonic on the refrain adds a very tasty tension with no wasted motion or lost intensity. I like the drone/pedal tone energy throughout, and the end is an unexpected French exit. This is kinda Johnny Marr school to my ears, and that's a good thing. Nice one!

Does that mean you didn't get the e-blast today Jeff?
