The Maccabees aren’t an earth-shattering band that will change the face of music. But something tells me that they weren’t setting their sights on such a grand prize anyway. The quintet, who hail from South London/Brighton, UK, are about to launch onto the world their debut full-length album next week (May 14th). If you’re lucky, you’ll find it mixed in with all the other random, unsorted “M” cds at your local music store, but most likely if you want to get in on this British indie-rock LP action, you’re going to have to order it from Amazon UK. I, for one, have got my order in already as I have been anxiously waiting for this album to drop for months now. After all, the Maccabees aren’t fresh out of the musical womb. With a slew of CD singles and 7in’s already pressed and under their belt, it was really just a matter of time before someone took notice of them and ponied up the cash to produce a proper album.
“Colour It In” (for all you non-Anglophiles please note the extra “U”) is a brilliantly poppy album full of catchy lyrics that make your head spin. With lyrics like “madames and monsieurs please return to your cubicles” and “you stood out like a sore thumb / the most beautiful sore thumb I’d ever seen,” how can you not fall in love with these Brighton boys?
