Not a waste: The Takeover UK

In music, music video on April 26, 2009 at 12:00 am

Okay, so they’re actually from Pittsburgh. But falsehoods should not keep you from seeing The Takeover UK on their tour with Gliss. The Takeover UK mixes dirty Brit-rock with newfangled whiny pop, somewhere between Jet, The Strokes and Lovedrug. Yeah, that’s it. The songs I’ve heard off Running with the Wasters are clever, well-orchestrated and full of bravado in fun pop hooks. Give me some more cliches for “good” and I’ll throw those in there too. By the way, their tour blog from the last two months is pretty entertaining–just remember, don’t yank on any cooler doors and be wary of Pittsburgh night life. Vid of “Ah La La” right here or after the jump.
