Martell

( Wichita 22/08/05)

Choral and thumping indie is what The Cribs that contain the three Jarman brothers from Wakefield, is all about if this indie trawler of a single is anything to go by. This catchy tune that is built around a bolstering drum beat gives a cheeky glimpse of the endearing cockiness of what could be indie’s answer to the Jackson Five, only there are three of them. Joe Strummer meets Preston from The Ordinary Boys vocals give the track a compelling kick.

The guys head out on a brief headline tour before hooking up with Mercury Prize nominees Maximo Park and The Kaiser Chiefs (have you heard of them?) for a riotous tour.
