Bands To Watch #74: Sad Day for Puppets

Sad Day for PuppetsDon’t let the name put you off, Sad Day for Puppets are the latest chirpy indie band that know how to create a hit or two.  The band only formed three years ago and are already tipped for numerous accolades and awards. It may be a cliche in the music world but Sad Day for Puppets have something more and different to offer than your average indie group with a fantastic mix of genre, style and tone.

Goldfrapp like vocals from Anna Eklund, twangly guitar rhythms and super-smooth  melodic electric leads all help provide an exciting and enticing listen. They’ve supported MGMT and in fact sound like MGMT fronted by a woman. Each track Sad Day For Puppets have made is radio friendly and above all good enough to fill the charts with their hippy, daisy chain sound.

The band have a truly blossoming sound and the fuzzy haze that is applied on the material gives a timeless feel. As for tracks to look out for, just take your pick. ” Marble Gods” and “Big Waves” are two tracks which look likely to be used to thrust the group into the limelight but the band have good consistantcy with plenty of other solid tunes like “Hush” which as the title suggests is a gentle yet upbeat feel happy track.

This Swedish group are not yet an Abba but its not hard to imagine that in a few years, these guys will be at all the festivals pumping out cheer to the audiences. Don’t they know there is a recession going on? Obviously not.
