Single: The Research / I Think She’s The One I Love

By on Tuesday, 7th October 2008 at 9:19 am

The Research have bounced back with a new album, tour and a glorious new single. I’d heard of them before this single, but never really taken the time to have a proper listen, however after being sent a link to their myspace page I must proclaim – I quite like the first single off their second album.

“I Think She’s The One” features jangly guitars, dreamy vocals, “woah-woahs” and 60’s style girly backing vocals – what more could you ask for from a first single?

So, if you like what you’re reading and hearing on their myspace, why not go and catch them at the below venues as they hit the road?

Tickets are on sale now for all dates.

Monday 20th October – Glasgow Stereo

Like your music angular and dance punky? Well rejoice, as The Faint have recently bounced back with a fifth album “Fasciination”, this time completely self-produced.

First single, “The Geeks Were Right” draws on the tenets of futurist literature and sliding, siren-call guitars… just what we know and love The Faint for, whilst being a bit different to their previous efforts…
