The Ghost - War Kids

The Ghost may well be the first act I've ever heard from the Faroe Islands. Although advertised as an electronic duo, War Kids sounds more like the work of a vaguely dated indie guitar band (think The Wannadies) with a little electronic window dressing. Tracks like 'Something New' and recent single 'City Lights' have big choruses that could make for decent festival moshing fodder this summer. However, unlike, say, MGMT they fail to carve out an identity of their own, making me think they'll struggle to be remembered once the tents and sleeping bags have been packed away.
