Take it from me...

"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

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…

When We’re Together
