SWIT Long Player of the week: Invaderband by Invaderband

*** KLAATU BARADA NIKTO *** – Invaderband by Invaderband

Back to Derry we go, and hasn’t that city produced some great bands over the years? Well here’s another one. This is the self-titled debut LP by Invaderband, a four-piece consisting of Adam Leonard, Chris McConaghy, Gavin McCartney and John Goodman. What do you get? Eight beautifully crafted, sharp as fuck tunes. Super confident songwriting that never puts a boot wrong. Understated melodies that show just enough to let you know that they know. Clipped vocals, clever, cutting lyrics, funny even. Skin-tight, clinical arrangements. Dissonance in service of consonance. If these guys decide to let rip then get out of the way because they’re totally wired (totally wired). Check it out now.
