When I was a kid in the early 2000s and watching those awful hedonistic-college movies one thing I could never understand was the relentlessly enthusiastic dancing around a song. It all seemed a little intimidating and almost pagan. That was until I listened to The Preatures “Is This How You Feel?” released last year. I played that song on solid repeat continually until a point came where I either got an embarrassing band tattoo or moved on for a while.
One of the greatest pleasures in life is a band releasing new material and rediscovering just why you were so enamoured in the first place and this is what we get with Somebody’s Talking. 60s inspired guitar pop that is just ideal for moving junk around my new room in Edinburgh. Their debut LP Blue Planet Eyes is released on 26th of September and is sorely needed.
