Whenever this song comes up on my iPod, I have to see who the band is. I always confuse the opening notes with a stripped down version of The Arcade Fires's Rebellion (Lies). Fitting seeing that they are touring with them this summer in North America.
Well, I finally got the name down. Electrelane. They are four piece all-female band from Brighton formed in 1998. Their fourth album was just released this month. The song below is both quiet and loud at the same time (I'm not talking screaching death metal loud...). The vocals want to have a sense of urgency but the guitars seem to do most of the work.
I am curious of what their older instrumental material sounds like.
