30 Seconds To Mars – From Yesterday

New single from Jared Leto’s band

And there I was thinking this would be the year of the Fleetwood Mac revival.

From the sound of the echo-y, reverberating guitar kicking off the new single from Jared Leto’s band, it seems U2 might be the band to channel for the forthcoming 12 months. Leto of course is a Hollywood star playing at being in a band so it’s no surprise that his band should emulate one of rock’s finest drama queens. Nor that From Yesterday should quickly degenerate into an emotion-pummelling barrage of bland guitars that could soundtrack a movie trailer featuring explosions, tears, flames and hi-fives.
