Have you ever heard about 'em?
The band, (for some reason) named after a Britain Indian food chain, was the winner of Channel's 4 "Road to V" competition on 2006. In fact, when they won, all of the four members of the band hadn't even graduated from high school yet.
The next year NME called them "the hottest band to come from North London for quite some time". But still after three realeased albums and various (sold out) concerts in Great Britain - and a few other places - they're still unknown around the world.
The good part is we can still call them indie... Even so, their first album, "I had the blues but I shook them loose", was one of the best to come out of the old continent in quite some time.
Laura Snapes from NME put it well... "If you’re over the age of 18, consider ‘I Had The Blues…’ your invitation back to the heady rush of teenaged rapture... And the rest of you, stay drunk on its certain romance while you still can."
There's nothing you've never seen before... But still, they're just pretty damn good....
