Au - Verbs
I discovered these guys yesterday in a dingy record shop somewhere in deepest, darkest Brighton. Their new album Verbs was playing in the shop and it was the first time in a few years that i've actually thought about putting back what I was about to buy in order to get their album instead. The music really caught me in a way that not many bands do and it normally takes a few listens to get it whereas with these guys it was an instant like. There is so much going on its hard to take it all in, played loud its quite overwhelming. Au's huge soundscape is mainly created by the multi talented Luke Wyland. Verbs is a full album, the tracks all flow well into each other. Au already have friends in high places supporting the likes of Fleet Foxes, Beach House and Phosphorescent and I should Imagine you will be hearing a lot more from these guys.
