With more tracks on the way very soon, hopes are high for Leeds indie outfit The Mexanines. In a previous form, according to their press information, they were ‘Arctic Monkey wannabes’. However, from the ugly duckling has risen this indie swan of a group.
If ‘Rocket’, their new video is anything to go by, this is a band who have found their own stride. Powerful even at mid-tempo, the track is a killer from the off, even before the stadium and radio ready chorus hits.
Keep an eye on The Mexanines – they could well be Britain’s next big band (not in the swing sense…).
