There is something of the Arctic Monkeys about the band – that classic British songwriting with a dark twist of Americana in the chassis, but they never take their eye of the ball when it comes to good times, uplifting music and the songs have an inbuilt sing-along thing going on- they manage to walk the tightrope between art and populist and with a bit of luck could be massive.
