Great new English music

I was sent a link to some wonderful free music by the band Lex Lisbon - new to me but certainly worth checking out. And you can do that here.

11 strong tracks on the EP, get some scars, being given away for free - so go on, treat yourself. Their sound is an original and quirky mix of great harmonies, edgy guitars, sweeping keyboards and trumpet . The opening vocal on the title track grabs you by the ears and is followed by lovely chunky guitar and keys and a sweeping hook that you'll be humming all the way to the pub. Bullingdon Club sounds like they're channelling an English Bruce Springsteen, full of bluster and raw energy. The vocals on keep me wild are sublime and the hairs stand up on the back of your neck when the trumpet joins the mix.

There's lots to love here; this is definitely a band to keep an eye on. I look forward to catching them live sometime this year.
