Album Review: Apologies, I Have None - 7"

Apologies, I Have None are renowned within the music scene as being some of the nicest guys around. They are also building up a reputation for writing some cracking tunes, and their latest relase '7"' is no exception at all.

These songs are the first recorded by the band as a 4 piece and some of their best to date. Kicking off with 'Joiners and Windmills', the song perfectly showcases theis bright young talent in all their glory. The song builds up slowly with honest sincere lyrics throughout, before the band launch into a killer chorus which instantly grabs your attention, I can already see this song being played in a packed sweaty club with fans screaming the lyrcs right back at them, if this doesn't happen soon then there is something seriously wrong within the UK music scene.

After a strong start the 2nd song; 'Sat In Vicky Park' does not dissappoint either, with group shouts perfectly accompanying singer Dan's distinctive vocal upbeat emotive growl. Apologies, I Have None sound like all of your favourite bands from the post rock genre rolled into one, they remind me a bit of a rougher, less polished The Xcerts, which is by no means a bad thing.

This seems to be a band that is everyone's best kept secret, they deserve to be playing much bigger shows real soon, as they are one of the brighest talents I've heard in quite a while. What's more is they have some of the best artwork I've seen in a long time; cut out owls and mice. What's not to like about that?

My only complaint about this is its too short, leaves me wanting so much more! You need to check this band out, they are quite simply great.

4/5
