It’s about time Everything Everything showed their faces again (read our review from their gig in 2010 here!) and it’s safe to say that they really don’t disappoint with their new album Arc - released this month and our listening choice of the week.
It is quite literally everything that you want an indie album to be: good beats, catchy and irresistible.
There are 13 awesome and varied tracks to get you through this tiring windy and wet weather plus an extra 6 on their deluxe album, each track representing a different tone and mood.
Some more upbeat tracks like Cough Cough contrasted with more melodramatic tunes like Torso of the Week with chillingly beautiful The Peaks. The only way to describe these guys music is just very cool.
The gritty underlay of their (Jonathon Higgs, Jeremy Pritchard, Michael Spearman and Alex Robertshaw) lyrics is covered by their eclectic funk but really they’re singing about a lot of depressing things like human irresponsibility and guilt. Don’t be mistaken though, this in no way deters from the fact that the result is absolutely sublime.
Take a listen and view at the awesome Cough Cough...
Next live gig will be at Oxford O2 Academy on Feb 14 .
