Lamacq-endorsed does hold some credibility behind you, especially when you are an up and coming band. Dartz have that endorsement and will have a lot of people giving them a listen just on that. It is a fact of life that people listen and respect what Lamacq has to say.
St. Petersburg is the new pop/indie record to come from Dartz, which is like a Radio One music shuffle. Once the first chord is played you get the feel of Maximo Park, but then we twist into Red Hot Chili Peppers guitar riffs. Who would have thought that this formula would work? But to add to the mayhem there seems to be more changes, twists and turns much like the England cricket teams form.
