Hard Fi are releasing an EP via Necessary Records on July 12th. Hailing from the same town as Mike Skinner of the Streets, Hard Fi sound a lot like the Ordinary Boys. Apparently they are calling themselves "diska," a self-created genre melding disco, punk and dub. check out the video for "Cash Machine" off of the upcoming EP with the same title which will also feature an awesome rendition of the White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army."
HARD-Fi having recently toured with the Kaiser Cheifs and The Bravery, emerged from South by South West as one of the bands for 2005 and just completed a sold out UK tour, HARD-Fi are coming to a town near you:
