Peter’s Aural Mystery Tour: Day 4
And we continue our journey along the pleasant byways of bands I’ve never heard of before with Athletes In Paris, a band from Newcastle.
When I saw that they were from Newcastle I thought “Excellent – an Australian band this time.” But when I started listening to the song and heard the lead singer’s pretty strong accent, I had a feeling that the Newcastle they were talking about wasn’t the one in the Australian state of New South Wales. I checked their MySpace page and found that they’re from Newcastle, England.
What I think they sound like: a dancey rock band. (I was going to describe them as “Scissor Sisters Without The Camp” but thought that may be a tad unfair to both bands.)
