Pop Single of the year (Get Lucky notwithstanding)? Or overrated flash in the pan?

Not heard this one yet, only really heard the Falling EP.

I do like them, but they're nothing special musically.

Don't Save Me and Falling are great pop songs, but from what I was on the Glastonbury footage, they were pretty awful. I'll check out the album.

all of their singles are superb - will be interesting to see whether the album lives up to it.

the lead singer was the guitarist in julian casablancas' band. true fact.

I did not know that. Might have to listen to his solo album again sometime, that first single from it was great!

they're all amazing musicians, not just the guitarist. really cool that they've taken their time over the album, rather than rush it out for the festivals.

*subthread* how long were people mispronouncing it for? i think i was for about six months

and i'm a fan. i like their sass

aside from being awesome (and having a name i can't pronounce), the bassist has the best bass face in rock.
