You know how sometimes, just sometimes, you KNOW that you’re going to enjoy a record within the first few seconds of its opening? Well, here’s one that had me bouncing around before the reverb from the first guitar riff had faded!
THE THESPIANS are a Liverpool four-piece, who on the evidence of this, their latest single are going to be the new darlings of Radio 6Music and Festival fodder for the forseeable future. Without knowing too much about them, I sense an air of ‘coolness’ and ‘rebellion’ in equal doses, just from this video – maybe out the same garage-rock school as the likes of The Strokes or The Vaccines, but who cares?
(Ok – their earlier video for ‘Reason To Reason’ is also added below)
