Not the Airport Line!

No, don’t worry. This line is manned by The Week That Was, a quartet outta Newcastle, England. They write brilliant, light-hearted pop music you can relax to. The arrangements appear simple, yet are packed full of ideas with the spirit to hit you in all the right ways – with sweeping melodies, delicately chosen strings, thumping drums, a vibraphone, amongst other toys, and all in a manner that isn’t composed for a certain niche of music aficionados. This sample below and everything else off last year’s stunner, would appeal to any serious or casual fan of melodic guitar pop. Really, it can’t get much more digestible than this.

Their 2008 s/t album consists of only eight tracks. Usually this brevity would irk me, but when all tracks are nearly flawless, I can only press repeat and experience these colorful and exquisite numbers over and over again.

Chicago gets them before SXSW does! Will you sleep?
