Songs For The Weekend: Great Escape Special

14 05 2010

This week I’ve chosen to feature two songs for the weekend in honour of The Great Escape festival. The first song is ‘Radar Detector’ by ‘Darwin Deez’, who after seeing them last night, were one of the best new bands I’ve seen in a while. Funky dance moves in between Strokesy pop brilliance topped off with a manic stage invasion.

My second choice is ‘Better Than Love’ by are very different looking, very different sounding, but equally brilliant new band who I will be seeing tonight. ‘Hurts’ – my Great Escape buddy Tom – aptly describes as a “21st Century Pet Shop Boys” are a slick Manchester duo who’s dark pop has been taking the NME Radar Tour by storm.
