Decent Debut from Galway's good time three piece in the mould of recent r.i.p. bands Supergrass and The Fratellies. No better time to release?
'What's She Doing Here' is the type of album I'd play loudly at a party. There's a couple of low tempo songs similar to the sound of Elliot Smith but in general this is a good time rock'n'roll album.
While there's no 'Pumping on the Stereo' or 'Chelsea Dagger' here for full on daytime radio the single 'Crawl Up' is a great attempt at a lads out singalong rock tune. 'Looking Back' and 'Got a Lot on my Mind' are brilliant songs full of big sounds and vocals. The best track for me is 'Good Times'!
In the main the songs are catchy and the album is a good un!
Mugger Dave - What's She Doing Here [10 out of 12]
I'm going to try my best to catch this band live as I'd say they'd be great entertainment.
