Essex band Asylums might only have two songs out and they might be the most difficult band to find on social media, but that doesn't seem to matter as they've already garnered love from XFM, Amazing Radio, and Huw Stephens on Radio 1 played their latest song 'I've Seen Your Face in a Music Magazine' yesterday. Clocking in at just under 2 and a half minutes, it's full of blistering energy that's just down right fun - it's the kind of tune you can automatically see stage divers, crowd surfers, and the like going crazy for at gigs. They've even got a fan in Dave from Blur, who said in a statement ‘Asylums are like Blur if they’d grown up in Seattle and signed to Sub Pop’.
