By Giant Drag
There has been quite a lot of recent hype and attention surrounding this two-piece from LA after touring with The Like and The Cribs. Annie Hardy and Micah Calabrese's first full-length album has been compared to PJ Harvey and Pixies, but Giant Drag's style is definitely their own.
With colourful song titles, like "Kevin is Gay" and "You Fuck like My Dad", people might expect this band to be a joke. They're not. As soon as opining track "Kevin is Gay" kicks in, you'll know that this band is something special and that their titles just show their playful side. "Cordial Invitation", YFLMD" "My Dick Sucks" and "This isn't it" really prove that this band can write beautiful songs, songs to dance to and songs that will stick in your head whether you like it or not.
Hearts & Unicorns is catchy and very sophisticated in its own dream-like way. Giant Drag are definitely going somewhere and this just might be the album to do it.
