OK so it’s a pretty silly name for a band, but bear with me on this one. Anyone else apart from me like the Beta Band? I love the part in the film ‘High fidelity’ where John Cusack gives a huge plug to them.
Shame they disbanded a few years ago. But stick this album on and it’s like they were never away. Except it’s not them. There are connections though. They’re also from Edinburgh and Django Django’s lead singer is the brother of the Beta Band’s keyboardist.
So what do they sound like? It’s a wee bit weird and all over the place, but catchy as hell. A bit poppy but not really. A bit dancey but not so much. I dunno, just give a go!
