Album ‘Alpha Games’ out in April. Sounds a bit like Old Bloc Party™: banging guitar riff, some terrible lyrics, quite fun.
LICK LICK LICK slurping sound LICKETY SPLIT!
In terms of post-Silent Alarm output I thought their album Four was pretty good for what it’s worth.
Best thing they’ve ever done imo.
If it’s as good as Four I’ll eat it right up
Decent riff and chorus. Spoken bits are very bad.
This band meant the world to me when I was a teen. Well, them and Radiohead and The Shins and Death Cab. But I didn’t even bother with the last album.
Nice dirty bass riff there.
Best song they’ve done for years.
Like a few others here I also thought that Four was excellent!
Not sure I can ever forgive them for the Hymn album
I’d be up for seeing them again. Saw them 6/7ish times around 2007/08.
Best thing they’ve done since that song that went “womp womp womp” and sounded like utter shit
If they haven’t got the original drummer they can FUCK OFF
I think he might be working in Algiers. But yes, he was the star of the show.
Their guitarist just released a track with the singer from Mew as well…
Not bad at all. What’s with big bands circa 2004 coming back right now? Franz Ferdinand have a new single and Editors are soaking up all that lovely HGATR love…
that franz single is dogshit tho, fair dos
It’s grown on me. Kinda thought that to start with, but I can hear a passable Sparks impression trying to break out of it.
I really like the chorus with those machine gun drums, something very appealing about it. definitely has a dynamism they didn’t have last time out. A nice surprise!
Have you all lost the plot? This is really, really bad.
Justin Harris is wasted on this band.
Reform Menomena ffs!
