Bands to look out for #7

Funeral Suits
Is there any space for another indie guitar band who can charm us as much as Two Door Cinema Club? Apparently so. Although Funeral Suits don't have the sing-along choruses of TDCC, they've got their sound down to a T, bringing simplistic guitar chords that compliment the ever popular Irish vocal. The band formed in 2008 but hid away from the public, locking themselves away in a disused office space in North Country Dublin. Their new single Colour Fade sees angelic harmonies fit in between their minimalistic approach, similar to The XX. They have recently finished their debut album which has been produced by Stephen Street; previous producer for The Smiths and Blur. They've got prestigious music acts such as Franz Ferdinand backing them, some decent tunes and fans of Two Door Cinema Club are bound to love them. Check them out at Wireless Festival on 3rd July.
