Post of the week winner: 22nd March, 2013
I think this is really good and I'm starting a thread to let you all know.


they have an album out today. I know nothing about them but from looking at them I don't think any of them were ever in Humanzi. I don't know what the Whatmans look like but I doubt they were in them either.

From their accents I'd guess they're from Dublin and though I'm normally cynical of people singing in Dublin accents, I'm on board with this one.

There's another band called The Fontaines in America so I expect one of them will have to change their name soon.

And 5 euro to anyone who can tell me what song the one I posted above reminds me of.

oh, maybe they don't have an album out today. Just that single.

fuck though, it's wrecking my head trying to remember what that song reminds me of.
Doesn't sound like a Dub accent to me. They sound like the Strokes crossed with the Libertines to me.

Richey James and Ian Brown in the background in that picture?

I'm sure i've heard of these before, that song ain't bad. It's a bit like the above bands with a Dublin accent covering the Ramones, which in fairness is enough ingredients at the same time to be a bit of a thing of its own.

Maybe early whipping boy but i'd think its more like a girl band thing except the band don't sound like angry vcr load mechanisms.
