"No matter what they tell us, this is not our war"

The William Blakes are a Danish pop/rock band that have seemingly come out of nowhere to release two albums in about a year's time. Their sound is varied. I'd best describe it as hooky, experimental pop. I can't decide what I think of the new album. On one hand, there are spacey, totally awesome tracks like No Matter What. On the other hand, the singing on some of the songs gets on my nerves a bit. Some of the notes are... interesting, to say the least. It's like the band has a split personality. Overall, though, I quite like them. Their album has a cool Superfamily-esque conceptual thread that ties the songs together, and there are some real gems. No Matter What was the first track that stood out to me and would be a fantastic summer single. It's both indie and pop and I think it'd appeal to just about anybody. It's also got one of the best grooves I've heard in awhile.
