Kaiser Chiefs - Oh My God
Kaiser Chiefs are an Indie Rock five-piece from Leeds that are about to become quite famous with this single and with their forthcoming album.
‘Oh My God’ begins with a slinky piano refrain leading into some clever lyrics in the verses sung in a not too unlike Beta Band style. Comparisons have been made to Blur but they sound more like the aforementioned band. The laddish sing-a-long choruses of 'Oh My God' have an almost football crowd chant to them which gives the song a strong universal mainstream crossover appeal and is sure to make it very popular in the Indie Clubs. Much of the songs nooks and crannies can be attributed to the producer, Stephen Street and to the competent musicianship of the band. ‘Oh My God’ is basically palatable, middle of the road Indie Rock served up for the masses.
Rest assured, the song will no doubt fare better than the chart placing of 22 of their previous single ‘I Predict A Riot’ and this single, along with their forthcoming album 'Employment', will catapult them into the big league.
