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.






Any fans, share some love & discussion?

I discovered them the same way. "Bones" is great but I haven't sat down and listened to the whole EP yet.

Once I heard that song from the trailer...I had to look them up. Their EP is pretty solid.

Good band. "Fantasy", the song they just released, is also really solid

That Bones song is pretty cool. I'll keep my eye on them.

I saw that they were opening for Marina a while back, but I never checked them out since I found out I couldn't go to the show, haha. I'll check this out when I get home.

"Dark Doo Wop" is so good.

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.
