catfish & the bottlemen
Universal / Island
this 4 piece from Llandudno, wales, fronted by charismatic, outspoken frontman Van McCann release their debut album & they already sound like they're ready to take on the world.
coming up through the lauded communion stable & produced by Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys / Kasabian / Adele), they deliver a highly accomplished record of big swelling choruses, big sing-a-long lyrics, big strumming guitars & big big ambitions. "Satisfying, metronomic bass & drum lines underpin guitar riffs that guide you through...The penultimate offering is the rousing 'Sidewinder', which starts with some thoughtful plucking before slapping you about with big, thumping bass & intricate guitar overlays. It will fill your ears" 4/5 - the daily post.
