With a view to going for a mainstream deal, Walsall-based Dropknee release a debut EP taster of their material. Though invited, I recently missed the chance to catch them live at Ronnie Scott's which I regret. Their acoustic driven indie pop rock contains songs penned by their frontman, Oli Nicholls, which have an undercurrent of their faith rather than being about up front ministry. The three songs include the catchy "Wish You Were Mine" with its hooky chorus and "Then There's You" which has a gorgeous mellower feel whilst "We Can Work It Out" (not the Beatles classic!) jangles along quite nicely. The band is currently in the studio recording new material which I can't wait to hear. This is all good but there's a need for the band to create a little more energy to grab hold of listeners. I'm told that in a live setting this occurs, but for now the band have to work to capture this on CD. Good but better to come I suspect!
