    I saw them at the KROQ xmas gig last Sunday.....very sterile band, in the same style as Vampire Weekend.

    I lost interest and ultimately did not go to see them as I had earlier planned on doing.

    I think we can drop the "indie" label after these guys.

  • I wouldnt pay money to see them live. They have a few catchy songs that I definitely turn up on the radio though. They are playing a festival here but they clash with Soundgarden. Choice was easy there haha

    They cashed in on one song. Not a smart idea. One hit wonders? :roll:

    Pretty much every song on the album is o.k. to good, intrested in hearing their second effort. Mark Foster sings like he's Barry Gibbs son, but it works.

    They are good but they are not hits. I actually liked the whole album. I think people are going to shit all over them once they get sick of pumped up kicks and all of the remixes that followed.
  • I still wish them the best though.

    Not what I meant. More power to them if they're making money, but can we really call this style of music "indie" anymore? It's become another form of pop.

    Pumped Up Kicks is a fun song, but I think it overwhelmed their other efforts. The rest of the music on Torches is just so-so. They could be in danger of one-hit-wonderdom. They better have some new music soon...and it better kick ass... Otherwise they're doomed. Too bad...

    Helena Beat was played on the radio a lot around here. It wasn't officially released as a single though, only as a promo single but did pretty well chart-wise from what i recall. Not as well as Pumped Up Kicks though.

    I like them and I think their entire album is good, but it seems like it has no substance to it. Its just super poppy, super catchy alternative that your just gonna get sick of eventually.

    When I first discovered them in about March or so, I heard Helena Beat. I like it better than Pumped up Kicks, and there's other songs on their album that are better. They're not deep or anything but its decent to listen to in the car when you want something a little lighter.

    :lol: I kinda like that song, haven't heard anything else by them. But others are right when they said that it's a song that can get overplayed and tired very quickly.
