This review is from: MIDNIGHT ORGAN FIGHT (Audio CD)
I watched them support Gomez (who were great!). Throughout FR's performance I kept asking my partner who this band were and why it was possible that I hadn't heard of this band before. Four guys with guitars and another one banging the drums like there was no tomorrow. And they looked great - like a unit, like a group of mates who had been together for years.
They're like Idlewild and Snow Patrol but SIGNIFICANTLY better. They reminded me a lot of The National - not in terms of sound but in terms of the emotions and feel of the songs.
The litmus test - I have been listening to this album all weekend and still can't get enough.
To see if they're good for you listen to "Good Arms vs Bad". The refrain on the guitar is gorgeous.
