Ah, The Maccabees, they’re amazing, right? I’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for the Brighton/South London five-piece. Maybe it’s because they’re a band who are actually extremely intelligent, poetic and write songs about a leisure centre in Latchmere and Lego. Having been away for a while since the release of album Colour It In back in 2007, they’re back with single ‘No Kind Words’ and an album to follow in May. This is what we like to call Good News, and the tune is pretty damn awesome too. Jerky, urgent and with minor-celeb Matthew Horne in the video with a strange haircut – hooray for The Maccabees!
