Oh, My Dears...
Okay, so the Dears have been keeping low key before they release their next full length, entitled "Missiles" on October 21 2008. You can preview tracks such as "Meltdown in A Major" at their website.
I love their epic, melancholic Smiths-like sound but with previous song titles such as "You and I are a gang of losers" and "22: the death of all romance", I find myself thinking of the Flight of the Conchords song, "Cheer up Murray." So come on,"Cheer up Murray [Lightburn]/Don't let it get you down/Pick yourself up off the ground/It's gonna be alright".
You know it's going alright with a Polaris nomination and an awesome track record already.
