Quite liking Flashguns at the moment. First fell in love with them when I heard debut single ‘Locarno’ which was equally tender and abrasive, bit Maccabees, bit marching band. Then came ‘Bells at Midnight’, which is a bona-fide indie hit and confirmed my belief that Flashguns have a knack for major melodies.
Now the Brighton boys are finally releasing their full-length debut 'Passions Of A Different Kind' and the eponymous single is another euphoric pow-wow of big choruses and bigger chords. Not sure what to make of the video yet, but let’s sincerely hope singer Sam Felix Johnston’s passion is more than camping with the boys and walking the dog.
P.S. Thanks to Ollie from TopButton Digital for sending me the album. Good stuff!
