Anthem In - The Cloudbursting EP


Yes, the Cloudbusting in question is the Kate Bush song but don’t worry because it’s good. Very, very good. In fact, it’s excellent, which is something entirely unexpected and surprising for me as I absolutely hate Kate Bush. Never mind, this is excellent, as I've already said, and the other four songs on here aren’t written by Kate Bush and they’re bloody excellent too. This is the kind of American Indie music you wish there was more of. Imagine what it would be like if Interpol knew what it would be like to smile and wear something other than black? Anthem In will put a smile on your face and a dance in your step, so catch them now before Grey’s Anatomy or some other such tripe get a hold of them and ruins it all for the lot of us.


This is very, very good work indeed, although I still hate Kate Bush.
