Woah, woah, woah. Where the hell have I been? “Milk” by London lads Theme Park is too perfect for me to have slept on. I found it via the good guys over at Make Indie Music Not Missiles and haven’t been able to stop playing it all day.
The band previously released a single called “Wax” (double a-sided single with the equally awesome “A Mountain We Love”). Theme Park have only been around since the early days of 2011, but one can easily hear the similarities between them and The Talking Heads. Only more modern influenced. Everything that I’ve heard from the band, consisting of two brothers, and schoolfriends, sounds clean and funky cool.
These guys sound cool, and it seems to come effortless. Everything about “Wax” justifies this claim. Comfortable vocals float at ease on top of simple but cool guitar riffs and a deep bass. Then you got “Milk”, a crisp jam that has the potential to be a party staple for me. Theme Park know how to right catchy songs that you will have no shame of playing to death. With Theme Park, there’s no such thing.
Theme Park are one of my favorite new acts, and are a band you are going to want to pay attention to in 2012.
