JANIE BLAIRE, THE INDEPENDENT...
This twitchy, highly addictive London (via t’north) trio have been knocking around the city’s dustier haunts for a few years now, but with debut single ‘Out of the Fire’ finally lurched upon us, we’re at last able to bask in their mature pop soundscape. The track is a fumbling menace of perfectly crafted tunage, highly styled and wonderfully catchy, setting them apart from a big section of the new-music-elite. Darn catchy pop done with both vigour and method. What The Standards serve with this much awaited debut release is a glimpse of a band who know how to write good music, structure it into something modern, lavish it with staggeringly kitsch guitars and package it in a way which seems wholly fresh;
It’s all rather too perfect and a phenomenal pop song, done by a band who seem so far removed from pop music. Confusingly brilliant, it’s a great debut.
Brimful of singalongs, happy-go-lucky guitar lines and, ultimately, a healthy dose of good times for those lazy summer days.
TOM HOCKNELL - ROCKFEEDBACK
(review for 'Out of the Fire' e.p) Leading in with the twitchiest guitar line since, well, Girls Aloud, the Standards emerge from our Future Sounds column into the fray, with hooks aplenty for any girl group with half an ear between them. With its chanting demand of ‘Don’t mystify or vilify me’, this proves that all the good songs are not already written. With tight harmonies and clocking in perfectly at 3 minutes this sounds simultaneously out of time and on the money; with a chorus made for the Queen Vic. 'Already There’ sounds unsettlingly classic. Are they sure this one has not been written before? TOM HOCKNELL ROCKFEEDBACK 4/5
