Idle Lovers Big Impression Single

This quartet from Hackney, London, has made their name by playing numerous gigs around the capital, sharing stages with the likes of Babyshambles, The Mystery Jets and The View. This, their debut single, is released on April 21, via download and limited edition vinyl.

Rhythmically similar to Scouting For Girls, "Big Impression" adds in some Libertines-esque guitar parts in what can be described as an eager attempt to mix modern successes in the indie scene. Throw in some Elvis Costello-like vocals and the ingredients aren't terrible, but the results fail to capture the imagination, being instantly forgettable.
