In the grand tradition of great pop music from Glasgow come Sexy Kids. Featuring three members of the sadly departed Royal We (their All The Rage single being one of THE anthems of 2006), Sexy Kids specialize in spiky post-pop with the emphasis on POP. Drawing comparisons to groups like Girls At Our Best and The Raincoats, Sexy Kids tunes never take the most direct route, rather they revel in finding a roundabout path to that killer chorus. Listening to Sisters Are Forever, the adjectives charming, playful and earnest spring readily to mind. It's a massive tune, with enough drive, energy and smarts to mark it as a future classic. Drown Me is more minimal, a skeletal jangle hanging on 8th note hi-hats, handclaps and a la-la chorus. Pure magic, and a perfect complement to the punkish pop of Sisters. This is Sexy Kids debut single, and on the strength of these two ace tunes we think you'll be eagerly awaiting more from them.
