Johnny Foreigner US Debut
Recorded with Machine (Fall Out Boy, Armor For Sleep) in December 2007, the Birmingham three piece have created a whirlwind of excitement with their frantic, melodic, indie-rock exuberance in their native UK. Now, they are crossing the pond and have already gained the praise from the Mecca of indie music know-how that is Pitchfork Media, who called them " a breath of fresh air."
Waited Up 'Til It Was Light features 13 tracks which combine melodic indie punk guy/girl vocals with feverish guitar lines that showcase the group's energy and talent.
Their fractured and unpredictable sound is strategically crafted with dynamic guitar riffs and frenzied moments of creativity, which shine on "Yes! You Talk Too Fast" and "Henning's Favourite." Still, the surprises come when one hears "Salt, Pepa and Spinderella" and the string-laden "DJs Get Doubt," when the group puts their quieter, contemplative side on display.
