Acts who Ben Folds lovers might like.....
« on: February 21, 2011, 02:31:46 PM »
A friend of mine (and fellow Ben Folds fan) introduced me to the band I Am Arrows recently. The album is superb, catchy, well constructed pop rock full or harmonies and big choruses that I imagine would appeal to Ben Folds fans. It's apparently the band of the former Razorlight drummer but it's nothing like Razorlight. I notice that Jukebox the Ghost crops up a lot on here as a band Ben Folds fans appreciate (and I'm one of them) and the thing that I Am Arrows shares with Jukebox the Ghost is the sheer cathiness of their music (but not in a cheesy way) You can hear a tune here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lMqLKwLdHC8&feature=related

While I'm here, another friend of mine suggested I check out a band called Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltzin - they're also great. If you only listen to one tune, listen to "Back in the Saddle" which you can find here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ue1GAyf66ro

Feel free to share your suggestions in return. Recommendations from other people seems to be how I discover a lot of the music I get into these days!
