BODIES OF WATER
Our Friends Appear Like The Dawn being punctuated by piano, organ and trumpet stabs, the cheering vocal melody is the one indespensible thing that makes it so stomach-churningly powerful.
By tapping into the Polyphonic Spree's patented 'more is better' theory, this band realises that having four human beings in a band means that you also have four sets of vocal chords at your disposal. No matter what the subject is, when everybody sings or yells at once, it is sure to sound universal and rousing. Over thirteen songs - as on their excellent and excellently-titled debut album Ears Will Pop and Eyes Will Blink - it results in an album of timeless campfire anthems.
