First off; Big Drag, despite all the weirdness surrounding them (have you seen their video to Kevin Is Gay?), are one awesome band, and im sure will have a prolific 2006. The Starting Track 'Kevin Is Gay' has a rift as catchy as the common cold, penetrating melacholic vocals and a whole verse consisting of a series of 'meows'...what more could you want? Seriously though, it seems to work, just dont ask me how. People who may be thinking at this point that Big drag don't take their music serious enough, one listen to the next track will change your mind. 'Cordial Invitation' is a beautiful song, with the soft acoustic feel being juxtaposed by the eerie sound of the vocals and the tension of the drums. My favourite track on 'Hearts and Unicorns' is 'Your full of S**t', it has such an electrifying chorus which really lifts you. The final track 'Slayer' weirdly enough, is a really smooth song (the name seems to suggest otherwise), with a smouldering chorus embued with the evocative whispers of the lead singer.
Every track is killer, with the highlights being the first two, 'Your so full of s**t' and 'Slayer'. At first i thought this band was a bunch of weirdos with a guitar, effects and a drum and to be honest i still think they are a bunch of weirdos, though looking passed that they have musical talent by the bucket load, all the songs are varied, and im going to go see them live in april, i truley have been converted.
Just to give you an idea about my musical perspective, I like bands like Coldplay, Arcarde Fire, Bloc Party, Muse, Radiohead, Jeff Buckley and Interpol.
Sorry for saying weird too much btw
