It took me all of 30 seconds to realise that Giant Radio were awesome. Ambient pop, fronted by fragile vocals and a great songwriting ability will always win out.
Photobucket MP3: Giant Radio - Kindling
Writing a piece like this about a band you've only heard two songs by could be perceived as being a bit naive but that just shows how strong those two songs are. 'Kindling' is this floating pop song, drenched in effects, whilst 'Sky Sky' is a tender - almost folky - song. Both very different yet great. There's a vulnerability to both songs, which is probably the unifying theme here. It's their main draw if you ask me. Lead vocalist Chris Thomas is a gem. His voice goes up there as being one of the best I've heard in a while. It hits me in the same way Andy Hull's voice hit me when I first heard him sing solo. What a great band.
