You musta heard of them by now, surely! The Icelandic 4 some are hailing as one of the 'most likely to succeed' (I hear they even got reviewed in Smash Hits!) and this is their new single.
With more then a passing flirtation with Richard Ashcroft's classic 'A Song For The Lovers', I can see 'Catch' (unfortunately not a tribute to the indie pop band of the late 90's) going down well with the Coldplay & Travis generation of fans with the repetitive and annoyingly catchy chorus and guitar riffs but, giving credit where it is due, there are LOTS of those kinds of bands out there and they are definetly a cut above most.
The b-sides include an interesting rendition of The Beatles 'Tommorow Never Knows' that stays very close to the original and yet with the vocals steering it in another kind of direction.
All in all, the band are going to do well and fair play to them but are they riding on the crest of a wave? We shall see...
