the Futureheads, led by vocalist/guitarists Barry Hyde and Ross Millard,
specialized in frantic pop a` la early Wire
on the four-song EP 1-2-3 Nul (2003) and the single First Day (2002).
Unfortunately, the album The Futureheads (679, 2004) contains a few
songs from the EPs, a terrible Kate Bush cover and a few fast-paced ditties
(Le Garage, A to B and Decent Days and Nights) that tend
to sound all alike.
The cover, Hounds of Love (2005), was the hit.
They mostly wed Mersey-beat harmonies and dance-punk from a new-wave perspective, like
a schizophrenic and slightly neurotic version of Franz Ferdinand.
News And Tributes (2006) contains Skip to the End, but the
derivative and bloodless songs hardly justified the hype.
An almost punk intensity fueled the power-pop of
This Is Not THe World (Nul, 2008). The album contains some of their
most melodic moments:
The Beginning of the Twist,
Broke Up the Time,
The Chaos (2010) lacked dignity.
Rant (2012) was an a-cappella album.
