Best Of 2012: #23
#23 - Tribes - Baby
Boasting some catchy melodies and with a fantastic singer which a powerful voice that reminds me of Suede's Brett Anderson for some reason, Tribes' debut certainly is a good start. The highlights include the first single, Sappho, with its tales of lesbian affairs backed by epic guitar, and Himalaya, with a great soundscape, reminiscent of the US band Girls (in particular, Hellhole Ratrace), playing out over the course of its five minute length. The opening trio of songs are also worth a listen. Overall, looking forward to seeing where this band goes next!
RECOMMEND: We Were Children, Sappho, Himalaya
LOW POINTS: Walking In The Street, Alone Or With Friends
