Is this the same band

Sounds like all the talent left

New Sound....

A striking change of tack from one of Glasgow's best kept secrets.

I'm sure it would have been easy for the band to rest upon their laurels and release Young America part II. However rather than peddle more of the same the band have used their line up changes to unleash a much rougher sound on an unsuspecting public and sound all the better for it.

Whilst debut album (Young America) was a concise and tidy little packet of Scottish indie pop this is very much more akin to Babes In Toyland, The Breaders or most likely The Ravonettes.

If this is an indication of what's in store on their second album then it promises to be a cracker.

hey hope...don't be bitter :)

your idle tounges can chatter all they like...
