Default The Maccabees

Ok, I know nothing about this band but just thought I'd post this song because I thought the vocals are amazing. It's so nice to hear actual honest to God singers fronting indie pop groups.



That's the lead single from their new album. I've downloaded the last one but after a few songs stopped listening because it doesn't compare to this song. I'll give it another shot but I just want to enjoy the possibility of them being really good for now...if you catch my drift...:\

I'm not a fan of 'No Kind Words', but seriously, give their debut a few more listens. It's a work of brilliance. Lego, First Love, All In Your Rows, About Your Dress, Toothpaste Kisses, The Real Thing - all excellent.

The new album is called Wall of arms, it leaked and it's very good if I do say so myself. Lives up to the lead single...catchy stuff. (:

Ok, it's not only good, it's fucking great. One of the most addictive things to come out this year.

Here's the fantastic second single:

Oh hiya! I'm just letting you know that I've managed to rack up almost 400 plays of Wall of arms in the last few days, meaning it's now competing with Veckatimest as the most listened to album this year. Thank you, that is all.
