Monday Moments - Last Bus
This weeks monday moment bucks the trend in that it comes from a debut release from this year.
I heard one of the early singles from this london 4 piece and thought it was a better than average sound of scratchy rhythmic guitars guitars and slightly mannered vocals - kind of a southern Franz Ferdinand. The lp didn't disappoint full of catchy tunes and clever lyrics.
Then slap bang in the middle came Last Bus , the pace slowed right down and the vocal dripped with longing and regret. However the monday moment is the cello that weaves its way in and out of the melody
and you missed your last train the last plane your last bus
and now you're telling me you're missing us
It wasn't just me as the song ended up winning them an Ivor Novello award
