Alright Libertines fans, here’s a fab new Brit band for you straight from Dundee, Scotland, The View. We’re in love with them here at PopMatters HQ, but then we do adore catchy British pop around these parts. [MySpace]
Here’s the official video for the single “Wasted Little DJ’s”.
... and here they are with “Superstar Tradesman” and “Wasted Little DJ” at the BBC Electric Proms. [You’ll need to crank the volume a little on this one.]
“Their songs balance a thrashy punk energy with a keeness of melody, the lyrics prosaically sketching out the tedium of adolescent life in the sticks… they play them like men with nothing to lose; the guitars sound frantic, while the false endings and sudden lurches in tempo have an infectious white knuckle excitement about them.”—The Guardian
