Scissors For Lefty - Mama Your Boys Will Find A Home (Rough Trade)
UK release date: 11 September 2006
This decidedly pervasive up-tempo number is the second release from the San Francisco four-piece who are the latest addition to the Rough Trade stable. Thereís a definite resemblance to Razorlight, and nods to the Libertines and the Strokes going on in this track.
Itís got a modern, synthesized and intrinsically bouncy feeling to it, and itís nice to see that the art of whistling is making a comeback. With the urgent guitar and drums opening launching straight into a jangly piano riff this is as catchy as anything else youíll hear. It will be filling floors in student unions in the run-up to Christmas, and you can expect to find yourself humming it as well.
With a debut album hitting the shelves in early October, we can only wait with baited breath to see what they present us with. Keep an eye out for this lot over the next twelve months, youíll be seeing quite a bit of them.
