WHAT’S THE STORY?: Favoured by none other than Rob Planter, the Wolverhampton boys are proudly waving the flag for the Midlands’ thriving music scene. Yes, apparently there is one.

Anyway! Behold! ‘The Glorious Aftermath’, single herald of their unnamed debut album, which is apparently out in October.

SOUNDS LIKE: ‘The Glorious Aftermath’ is more of that upbeat, slightly knowing pop-rock that seems to be quite popular these days. They have a fast-paced rattling-down-the-lane delivery, but you can’t help feeling this might be because they’re simply racing to catch up with their predecessors. So while it’s competent there’s not too much to distinguish it from the rest of the pack.

Follow-up track ‘No more, no less’ is a more mature effort than the shiny matt colours of its sibling track. It’s a shade darker and a hair more dangerous with more than a hint of ‘Paint it Black’ to the melody, giving it a sort of paradoxical laconic urgency. Again, however, it’s only ‘good’ and not ‘great’.

YOU’LL LIKE THIS IF: Maybe you like things like Kasabian?
