The Potbelleez - Feed Off Me

"Where do I end, where do you begin?"

I've written about Australia's Potbelleez once before (how's that for an opening sentence?), and remarked about how much I hate their band name. It's completely unappealing and makes you anticipate some dreadful, boozy schlock rock outfit. In fact, this band makes trendy, commercial dance pop. Throughout the album, vocals are shared between several band members, making for a somewhat scattershot listen. But when it works, it works. Opening track, Feed Off Me, forgoes the trendiness that mars some of the later songs for a straightforward, anthemic pop sound. There's a rock influence here as well, which gives the whole thing a meatier production. Fans of Swedish dance pop (like the Attic, for instance) will love this.

Much like. And totally agree, the name does not do them justice.
