Everything Everything

Two words: Everything Everything.

This british indie band is formed of Jeremy Pritchard, Jonathan Higgs, Michael Spearman and Alex Robertshaw. Despite hitting the music scene in 2007, it wasn't until 2010 when they were nominated for the BBCs Sound of 2010 poll, did the boys get their first big break. Although not featuring in the top five of the poll, Everything Everything were very successful in using this as a platform to get their name and music out there. Later that year, the boys released their much hyped about debut album "Man Alive."

After the release of "cough cough" and the more recent "kemosabe," Everything Everything have announced they will be releasing their second album "Arc" on 14th January.

Lead singer Jonathan Higgs has such a distinct and individual voice it is impossible to mistake Everything Everything with other indie bands currently featuring in the charts.

Although I am pretty keen on this band, in terms of live performances they haven't received the best reviews. Even though their music is anything but standard, with catchy offbeat rhytthms and jerky beats, their performances have apparently lacked energy and confidence. I would say however that from the early days of 2010 when they released their first album, to the band they are now, there is certainly a noticeable difference. Their music has become a lot less chaotic and much more listener friendly - watch the gap, there are going to be a lot of more crowd pleasing singles coming our way soon. As for their overall performances, touring alongside Snow Patrol is surely going to help anyone find their performance style!

Give them a chance ...these boys have not peaked yet and believe me, when they do you will want to be there!
