So this is probably the longest time it has taken a record to go from my inbox through the my ears and onto this blog, still it’s been a long time coming but who says the system doesn’t work.

About 5 months ago I got hold of Headgeared by Nobody Wave. The sound sits somewhere between The Strokes and The Libertines, I know those bands arent that far from each other; both pillars of the last 10 years of indie-whatever music and both have a the same fans. Nobody Wave play some seriously good music and while I always find myself rummaging through my brain to try and figure out who they remind me of I never skip a track on my morning shuffle (eh? geddit?) to uni.

I got a similar vibe from the band Laarks who put out one of my favourite albums of the last few years about this time a year ago, you wont take too long to  settle into this music but it still sounds great. Actually it sounds really great and you should check them out.

 

thanks

    It’s hard to pin point similar bands to nobody wave. There are many influences but they are so unique. I love Headgeared. The only thing better is watching them play it live!
