I was having a discussion a couple of weeks ago with some fellow music
You may not notice that their music has such a political slant or is informed by the ongoing troubles, as singles like 'Your Colour' are bright and breezy, Americana-infused shoegaze filtered through the shimmering haze of sunkissed psychedelia. Vocals aren't angry, they're more heavenly and velveteen than that, especially the backing, plus, the guitar rings and chimes like all the best bands who also dabble in associated genres. Perhaps this form of dreamy indie acts as a form of escapism, or at least does so musically. Their country's problems may have been overshadowed by events elsewhere for the time being, but songs with a sound as heavenly and lush as this should get maximum exposure. Given the industry's preference for making a quick buck this is perhaps unlikely, but they're already becoming stars in our eyes.
