Christ, I thought we’d got over everyone wanting to sound like Vampire Weekend. If the itchy-toed rhythms and big synth soaring choruses are all in place, though, this lot’s brain-dead electro-indie is closer to The Wombats than anything else. “[i]When everything surrounds me… I look down at the streets below, get lost in a starry glow[/i]”, muses singer Matt Rokk. No, Matt, UP. The stars are up. Sheesh.
