Think of a chocolate fudge cake with a sweet, soft centre and you'll be close to the delights of Leon's first single, taken from their forthcoming debut album Uppers And Downers. It's a strong song with a heart of gold and a sweet scent that's far less twee than the likes of Keane.
Flying high on the success of their debut single Don't Feed The Animals, the Derby-based band, who only formed in 2004, have a Britpop-like radio quality but emit a much nicer musical fume. Be There is a finely composed little song augmented by Leon Black's wonderfully melodious vocals. It is accompanied by the Prozac Generation, which begins with a smart piano introduction before drumming up to a smooth sounding rhythm of delicate guitars, bass and vocals.
For guitarist/vocalist Leon Black, keyboardist Lee Horsley, bassist James Kersey and drummer Martin Holland-Lloyd, it won't be long before they'll be there - that is occupying a much-warranted place in the charts.
