Viva Brother - Famous First Words
These uncanny gobshites don’t deserve to sound so catchy and likeable. Like Yuck with grunge, Brother are an unabashed facsimile of '90s guitar pop. ‘New Year’s Day’ is a direct rip-off of The Dandy Warhols, while ‘David’ does that ‘ti-aye-ime’ thing that Oasis and everyone did back then. What’s frustrating is that it’s too damn enjoyable and not quite derivative enough to actively hate. They’ll probably be massive, so you might as well get used to it.
