Genre: pop, Britpop
These lush popsters seem to have a nice marketing
backing behind them (Interscope Records, anyone?) and if "Sewn" is any
indication they've garnered it rightly. I'm getting into the fray
pretty late, as this song entered on the UK Singles Chart over a year
ago, but it seems they're trying to break it into the American market
(accordingly, it was featured on teen soap One Tree Hill a couple months ago.)
This reminds me of The Perishers from awhile back, but less
bland and melodramatic. The song lulls you into a stable melody until
the sparkling end, which ends the whole thing in a lovely climax.
Think British Maroon 5, and you've got the idea.
