British indie rock band try not to sound like Arctic Monkeys and/or Radiohead challenge: IMPOSSIBLE

the band borrows sounds from everywhere but they still manage to sound pretty boring and generic
the delivery gets kinda annoying and the instrumentals get a bit messy sometimes
also idk how to explain it but it sounds pretentious. it's not as good as it tries to make you think it is (if that makes any sense)
look it's not bad if you're absolutely itching for music like this, but these guys bring nothing new to the table imo

I don’t really see how these guys sound like arctic monkeys at all. Radiohead I can sorta see tho

Giving Gigi's Recovery a 50 automatically makes me disregard this. But I respect your opinion nonetheless.

@kingofants I feel it's especially the vocalist who, to me, goes for an Alex turner sound sometimes

@kiforn to each their own, I understand where you're coming from tho. with albums like these I tend to like the least rated song the most and dislike the highest rated one
I actually gave this a couple listens too so idk, probably won't really grow on me. glad you enjoy it tho

I don't think someone with that profile have any criteria

@melphria they're from Ireland, a part of the uk. and to each their own I found some similarities, more with RH, but some with AM too

do you actually think that ireland is a part of the uk, or are you just trolling πŸ’€

Singer is Irish and has an Irish accent so not sure how he could sound like Alex Turner who is from Sheffield. Which is in England. Just to clarify... Ireland is not in England.

@jamie1985 thanks for the info. it is england tho

Doesn't really sound like either of them tho lol. If anything I'd throw in some post-punk band like Joy Division or Strokes or something

Also England =/= Britain, and no Ireland is literally independent from the UK lol, that's like saying that america is part of the UK
2mo
@wiloptics america IS part of the UK.
