I can not get enough of this song, it is simply brilliant the production the best i have heard for a while the vocals are vibes and the video is blessed, it is the first song i have heard for a while that i have imply been playing over and over and over again. Everything about it makes a summer anthem. The Band themselves are spanish and the new album is currently available on itunes they are doing a small tour at the moment with one uk date in London in July at the Lexington.

I saw these supporting Surfer Blood a month or two ago and loved them (so much im going to see them at The Barfly next week). They sound like a youthful version of The Strokes with a little less rock and roll swagger and more of of a punk vibe going on. Really catchy with big singalongs. Good vibes.

John & Jehn have turned from melancholy and metric, into this dark dance band, not that thats a bad thing. i'm into the new single and video. but part of me cant let go of "DOM", so far, i personally prefer the darker earlier stuff, but this is a nice change in direction.
