They are introspective, skinny, young, talented. Why, they must be For A Minor Reflection, the latest band lazy journalists like to compare to Sigur Rós!
But their talent belies their age, and the general opinion of the Very Important Music Press is that they’re very good indeed, and should be high on your list of bands to tell other pale and interesting people about in dingy indie clubs this weekend.
According to our resident specialist, their sound falls into the category of “post-rock” which apparently means they don’t use vocals and their tracks are very long and progressive. (But, he adds, “thankfully not in that annoying Emerson, Lake & Palmer kind of way!”)
For A Minor Reflection release that difficult second album soon, and will probably play in a town near you this year. (Note that the accuracy of this prediction may wary depending on your physical location.) If not, you’ll probably be able to catch them at Iceland Airwaves 2010. (They were a resounding hit in 2009.)
