Sometimes you can tell in the first few moments that something is going to be good. Great melodies and meaningful lyrics, underpinned with jangling guitars and solid rhythm. Forget the band's name, this is great stuff. Comparisons? They're helpful maybe - more soothing than REM, more guitar than Coldplay, not as gruff as the Stereophonics, but somewhere in the same musical space as all three. Lyrically their songs are vertically orientated and occsionally straight ahead worship. Their last album 'Much' did well. This is even better. I've said all I need to say, but don't just take my word for it - check it out for yourself.
