Best Uk band around right now IMO.
Ive followed this band for about 5 years now, through previous incarnation 'The Honeymoon Suite' and now into the Cape Race era. tHS last ep, was such a good release, it was criminal it never hit everyones radar. ive heard some songs off 'now, voyager' and they are a massive step up again. The band self funded the recording with pete miles and was worth every penny.
The one thing 'they're young, they're in love' doesn't hint at is how epic the band can be, songs such as the reprieve, bets and now, voyager are all the best bits of brand new, thrice, kings of leon and fall out boy all rolled into one.
Melons lyrics are always so sharp and clever too, "forget my blessings, i am counting calories, but all i seem to vomit out are these routine pleasantries." and "blessed with a sharp tongue and cursed by the consequences, words striped of actions masqueraded as confidence."
If the band are ever playing near you, you'll be stupid to miss it, best frontman ive EVER seen. Hands down.
So happy to see them entioned on AP, hopefully this is the start of much more to come.
