new music: Post War Years, ‘All Eyes’
This single and accompanying video by struggling (in the best sense of the word) Londoners, Post War Years, somehow slipped under my radar when it was released in November. It’s a slight departure from the tunes they’ve been putting out the past couple of years. Typically energetic, the boys have slowed down the pace from danceable speed-freak to a methodical sway. The acid-induced video is captivatingly creepy…just the way I like ’em. About two-thirds the way into the song (and video) they reveal the trick up their sleeve, and that’s what I like about the band. They have progressed nicely in the short span of their existence, and they have a knack for incorporating new, smart sounds to each of their songs. Although I would say a track of theirs called ‘Black Morning’, is still their best song yet, if you give it a listen, it’s comprised of a completely different set of sounds from this new single – and I’m willing to bet there’s more where that came from. Keep an eye out for these brits, they’ll be big in no time.
