Speed

By Oversol

Easy listening but none the less entertaining. Starting like an upbeat Elbow song or one of the latest Athlete offerings - 'Speed' goes from strength to strength and isn't as linear as you first may expect. Optimistic lyrics and a mid paced Doves-esque chorus complete with a haunting keyboard and very, very Coldplay style vocal contribution in the bridge culminating in that all important indie key change and you have one very accomplished pop song with a tad more respect due than some of their contemporaries. The B-sides follow suit with added keyboards. Starsailor? Keane? Embrace? Just think every main player in mainstream indie right now and Oversol could feasibly sneak in with them. By no means spectacular but then mainstream indie never is, is it?
