The Voom Blooms

For a band that formed just a hair over a year ago, Loughborough four-piece The Voom Blooms has been making incredible strides on the other side of the pond. After supporting Exitfare favorites like Babyshambles, Boy Kill Boy, and Larrikin Love, the band was featured on the BBC and Radio 1 helping to create a buzz that propelled their debut single "Politics & Cigarettes" to sell out of its first pressing in less than a week. Their second single "Anna" will be released on a limited 7” on September 18th by the band's own label, 23 Recordings. I expect that the track's blustering speed, pent up energy, and desperate, love-sick lyrics will cement The Voom Blooms as an exciting new band to watch.

The single's not quite as good as I hoped, it doesn't sound particularly different to a lot of the bigger mainstream indie acts around in Britain. But I've heard good things about them anyway so maybe I'll be impressed by them later.
