Mcfly - If U C Kate

"Everywhere she went, Kate drew a crowd"

I'm really enjoying Mcfly's new album (and I'll have a track-by-track tomorrow to tell you what exactly I'm enjoying about it). They're the kind of young band that, upon bursting onto the scene seven years ago, were easy to dismiss as a flash in the pan. Yet they've managed to stay relevant for almost a decade now (that's a lifetime in popstar years). It's down to likable personalities and a real gift for a great pop melody. Best of all, they're maturing with the times. Their new sound is a real progression, even though it seemed like a Gaga-bandwagon-jumping stage at the outset. Thankfully, the overall shift is more subtle and less trendy. This is especially apparent in songs like If U C Kate, the funkiest track the foursome have ever recorded. The synth after the chorus (and at the very beginning of the song) is just irresistible. I'm not sure if, as a whole, the album quite lives up to Motion In The Ocean (their pinnacle, in my opinion), but it's a very pleasant surprise.
