Make Model

The Was

The buzz around Glasgow’s Make Model is getting pretty noisy. So

much so, in fact, that if you cup your ear to the ground you can actually hear the little bugs saying “they’re the British Arcade Fire” between grass chomps in relation to the glockenspiel-pounding, trombone-parping Next Big Things. Our little chums aren’t far off, really, as ‘The Was’ is a layered orchestration bordering on the anthemic. It’s not quite up there with the hurdy-gurdy-wielding Canadians, but they’re already better than Annuals and they haven’t even smashed one of Jonathan Ross’s TV cameras yet.
