Kaiser Chiefs

Everything Is Average Nowadays

Kaiser Cheifs
After the high-wire romantics of hit single ‘Ruby’, Earth’s grumpiest six-time platinum-sellers revert to type with a song that scrunches its nose up at the modern world in the ‘I Predict A Riot’ mould. It’s a rarified skill how this lot manage to make songs with such a disgruntled outlook on stuff sound so bloody nursery-rhyme cheerful. But here it is again; so naggingly addictive they’ll be shrugging their shoulders at the Number One spot (again) in no time.
