“Plink Squares” had an original single release over a year ago. It’s now been re-recorded. The lads are more grown up and the recording is a bit slicker. Just heard the track on 6 Music yesterday and really enjoyed it. Not sure if I like it as a ‘stand-alone’ or it just blended with the rest of their playlist.
I’d heard the track a few times before on Xfm as well, but didn’t know the name of the band. The guitar intro makes me think of Tears for Fears’ “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” only faster. At least that’s the song that comes to mind. I’m just sure there is another song that is closer, but I just can’t come up with the song or artist. Any ideas?
Either way, here are both vids –
Their debut album will be released in the middle of February. It’s titled: I Want You To Know That There Is Always Hope. If you’d like to know more about the duo, here’s an older interview from Drowned in Sound.
