Firetruck finds The All New Adventures of Us - or Tanaou as they will be forever known - making big steps towards getting some mainstream recognition.
As a seven piece Tanaou don't overcrowd their songs as some are wont to do when they've got more musicians than they know what to do with. Instead they concentrate on making music that is without a doubt nestled on the twee end of the scale.
Everyone might be looking for the next Arcade Fire, but Tanaou aren't it. They could however, be mentioned in the same breath as Belle and Sebastian quite easily. Firetruck sets off with an encouraging blast of brass that for a split second has you singing "The Sweeney" in your head, but that's soon forgotten as the final breaths of summer are hurtling through the internal organs of Tanaou's trumpets.
Once introduced with this blast of exuberance comes the somewhat glass half empty vocals which call to mind Paul Heaton - and in particular Paul Heaton doing that dad shuffle thing when the Beautiful South were doing an uptempo number. Fortunately this is coupled with a beautifully pretty female vocal, which keeps things veering towards the light side of the scale.
Tanaou could be on to something here. Admittedly there's nothing massively challenging here, but Firetruck is bright and interesting enough to suggest that Tanaou have a few great tricks up their sleeves.
