Bands to keep a watch out for in the future: #5: The Hoosiers

By on Monday, 30th April 2007 at 3:31 pm

A few weeks ago I got a random CD in the post. Turns out I’d been put on a mailing list for record companies, and had been sent “The Hoosiers” single “Worst Case Scenario”. After getting over the excitment of getting a free CD, I got round to having a listen. And found I quite liked it.

Granted, they’re not going to set the world on fire with their innovation and new sounds. Yes, they’re quite corporate and unlikely to say the wrong thing. However… they are very catchy. And do have a guy who looks like he’s right out of the 118 adverts. And another guy who looks like he’s from the Feeling. But apart from that they’re great.

Funky, catchy, and oh-so radio friendly they sound like the Kooks and Franz Ferdinand having a montage moment in an 80s film of their night out.
