The Maccabees

Much feted Brighton four piece

To borrow from the title of their August 2006 single The Maccabees took their precious time about releasing this album. Relentless touring over the last two years has seen a steady rate of followers converted to their cause over the sudden groundswell often seen after being decreed ‘The Next Big Thing’. This is something that they feel particularly glad of: “It is a much more natural thing,” says Hugo before older brother and fellow guitarist Felix adds: “It has helped us not having too much over exposure and our gigs have become a much more personable experience because of that. We would rather have somebody come because a friend has told them rather than because they have been told to by a magazine.”
