The ability of the band to convey normality in an exciting way is what really draws me to their sound, as lyrics such as from the dancefloor, to your front-door, to the contours of your skin is both insanely catchy but also recognisable for the average listener.

Buy their latest album ‘Out of Sight, Out of Town.’ here.
