I used to love it, it still sounds great to me.
'fucking brilliant' then you'd be correct.
I hope The Futureheads keep making records for many, many years to come. They may not divert from their stock sound too much but it's a good 'un - they make short, sharp, jerky records with singalong choruses, fun vocal harmonies and often play at a breakneck speed far closer to punk than indie. A total blast live (often pretty funny 'tween-song banter too) and always seem to show good humour and grace despite being dropped at a time when they were hardly flatlining, which shows resolve too. They know what they're strong at and they by and large stick to it, unashamedly & without trying to amalgamate ill-conceived and seemingly arbitrary new 'directions', and it still works.
Fucking love them.
haven't listened to them in YEARS. the hounds of Love cover was my favouritemost song ever at the time
