I saw this while browsing the internet....now admittedly I may be biased.
Actually no, I'm not. Late of the Pier are fucking great - they epitomise what's exciting about 2008 and beyond. Deep, rich and varied. Never before has a band showed such contempt for pigeonholing sounds. 2008 will be their year. And I don't think I'm alone in thinking that. They WILL be bigger than The Klaxons.

"We think Late of the Pier could be bigger than Klaxons. They have three different sounds in one track: cool indie, 70s synths and techno, all at once. They're really young and produced by Erol Alkan, who does things like make a guitar sound like a saxophone. Another band we like are the Heavies, who are a mix of disco and funk - and the guy has an unbelievable voice. At the other end of the spectrum we like the long-awaited comeback album by an old band, the B-52s. They're back in Love Shack style. We like the Hot Chip album, too. It's a mix of 70s and 80s, but sounds like now."
