I'm Excited About 2007
i really am! Happy New Year, by the way, i've been a bit slack with posting recently. Got exams in a couple of weeks so trying to revise hard. Anyway back to the year to come and the huge amount of anticipation i have for it. Last year was great year for music with so many quality records coming out and 2007 should be no different. Here's a few artists that i feel you should look out for in the next twelve, i'm sure they'll be making waves.
This 7-piece from Cardiff have already been given the glowing accolade of being called the British Broken Social Scene, thats quite a big expectation to meet but from the bouncy, catchy and fun tunes up on their myspace it seems like they might be on their way. I've heard from reliable sources that they put on a hell of a live show, and with their upcoming UK tour in February and recent signing to Wichita Records, we'll all get a chance to see what all the fuss is about.
Los Campesinos! - Sweet Dreams, Sweet Cheeks
I Was A Cub Scout
Hailing from the musical graceland that is Nottingham, this electronic punk indie duo make pop music that is clever, inventive and pretty good fun to dance to. With two 7" releases in 2006, the band are hopefully going to be putting out some more records and hopefully a full length this year. I saw them live last year actually, supporting The Research, and despite some technical difficulties put on a really good show so i'm gonna try and catch them early on this year before they explode.
I Was A Cub Scout - Pink Squares
Emmy The Great
Already a firm favourite here at funfunfun, Emmy had a great year last year, releasing her first single, Secret Circus, and playing with some wonderful people, such as Tilly & The Wall and Diane Cluck and the success is sure to continue with the release of a single on Moshi Moshi, hopefully it will be Edward is Dedward. I love this lady very muchly, as much as spending a Saturday in front of the tele watching all your favourite childhood movies. Ahhhh bliss.
Emmy The Great - Edward Is Dedward
This folky duo from Sheffield have been playing everywhere recently. They must have covered every inch of the land on their travels last autumn and this continues into 2007, as they spread their beautiful sounds, supporting Hot Club De Paris and The Noisettes, in Jan and Feb. There's just a guitar as backing while Charles and Rebecca play around with witty lyrics and playful melodies, sounds like very clever playground songs, if everyone in primary school like Neil Young and Bright Eyes and could sing like an angel. I'm sure you'll be able to catch them live somewhere near you this year.
Slow Club - Biology Hearts
Other things in 2007 that i'm excited about:
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Scott Pilgrim Gets It Together
The Golden Compass
Finishing my Physics degree
Hopefully going to my first Glastonbury
