Guess who’s back? After a rather stressful end of year at uni I’m back with another review. Oh…and I’m back for good this time.
Even though I don’t know most of my readers in person I do like to treat you guys as my friends so I’d like to take this chance to apologise for not being a good writer and posting regularly. I promise not to do it again!
Many bass players ago in the capital of England, a five-piece dance/indie/rock/whatever-else-you-want-to-classify-them-as band formed. 2002 was the year Bowman introduced themselves to the music scene later to be known as The Winter Olympics.
Three EP’s later and we arrive at the present day where The Winter Olympics have a steady lineup and have brought upon us their most recent single: ‘I Prefer The Early Stuff’.
The single opens with a simple yet full instrumental which is soon dominated by vocal work from frontman Andrew Wagstaff. His voice could be compared to that of Harry McVeigh (White Lies) except a little less on the depressing side of things. It comes as a shock to the system when the track hits the 40 second mark and brings a rush of adrenaline and a strong desire to jump up and down.
Although seemingly repetitive on the first listen, I highly advise sticking with this one. It’s definitely a grower and will soon reveal it’s true nature as a catchy 90’s style indie anthem that you’ll be singing along to 24/7.
Check them out on Facebook and get down to their FREE show at The Wheelbarrow in Camden tomorrow (30th May)!
