I'm late to the party with these guys, & I'm not even going pretend I'm some long term fan who's been with them from the start. I first heard their tune "bones" just recently in the Game of Thrones Season 3 trailer.
I was obviously intrigued enough to check out their album/EP Candy Bar Creep Show & seem to enjoy it so far. The tunes are soaked in gloom, but not so much that it engulfs their hooks. The vocals are like a bold voice lost in the mist of a dark night. All'n'all it's an enjoyable EP, but I wouldn't yet say I'm the biggest fan on the planet, but they've become a band I'm very much excited to see what can be created with their next album.
Anyway, check out a tune or two for yourself & see what you think.
Good to see some fans (of the Game of Thrones as well haha). I've been listening to the EP a fair bit lately. It is really enjoyable & a strong EP. I just want more before I can really settle with these guys. Hopefully an album isn't too far away, especially since the songs on the EP have apparently been available for a long long time.
It might have just been the performance, but I saw them open for Bastille a week and a half ago and wasn't super impressed at all. The reverb/production on her voice recorded does wonders because they sounded really lounge-bandlike and dull live. Most of the crowd seemed really bored around me, but I like that "Bones" song on record.
