Flash Guns

Myspace // "Locarno" [mp3]

There are hordes of great young bands producing music in the UK right now. Bands with innovative sounds and catchy lyrics that play shows on weekends, then return to their local high schools for classes on Monday. We've already written about Pull In Emergency and FortyFives, so now it's time to talk about an equally stellar band called Flashguns.

Flashguns are a quartet of boarding school kids from London and Brighton that play music that's deeply rooted in the sounds of the '80s
though updated somehow to seem totally fresh and current. Their music is the nexus between The Smiths and The Cure and newer bands like The Libertines and Arctic Monkeys, which may not make much sense until you give them a listen. I can't get enough of this band, their songs are so amazing that you'll keep them on repeat for days.
