THE hype in England. Four boys from Sheffield in which the English pop-press (again and again) sees the new Beatles (just like Blur, Franz Ferdinand, the Bravery, the Libertines etc etc.). The band was so overhyped that, without having a cd out, they where voted, after Franz Ferdinand (2004) and the Kaiser Chiefs (2005), the best band of 2006. The album is very nice i have to say, little bit of the Jam, a bit of the Smiths, et voila: punk meets indie. The singer has a very brittish-punk accent which fits very well with the music.
