Currently taking a year long sabbatical, this guitar crunching, Memphis pop rock team leave us with a taster that keeps us expecting they will be back for more. With consummate ease and energy they manage to drive a powerful sound and invent wonderfully infectious pop tunes whilst capturing the intensity of a live gig (adoring fans and all) and hit highs with "What Would Jesus Do" and "Livin' Off Your Love" to a pummelling effect. Undeniably foot tapping and sing alongable with some retro leanings a little reminiscent of the Beatles at times. Positive, enjoyable musicianship that suggests that the US scene would be poorer without them.
