"The Time of the Signs!” is how this week’s band announce themselves on their Myspace page. (Damn, I wish I’d thought of that…)
The Signs are from Leeds, and have apparently only been together barely six months, so we’re getting on at the ground floor here folks. I regularly predict success for bands but, considering this is supposed to be a discovering-new-bands-sort-of-a-blog, I’m alarmingly poor at actually getting it right.
But. I still reckon the Signs are a band we’ll hear more about in the future. They write really good rough edged pop songs, are not afraid to throw a few guitars around and make a noise. Which is, of course, A Good Thing.
Their first single “Medication” is available online now (from here) and you can also watch a video of it at their Myspace page. It’s a real cracker and probably their strongest song. Actually, I’m sure it was available as a free download from their Myspace page just last week, but has been taken down by now. So I won’t post that, but instead I’ll post another really strong mod-ish number called “When we’re together” which will give you the flavour of what they do.
I wish I could tell you more, but that’s as much as I can find out as yet. Maybe the lads themselves can let me know more…
