The Ideal Panic - I See Too Much Of Myself In You

A curiously archaic introduction from a Glaswegian band who only formed earlier this year, "I See Too Much Of Myself In You" brings to mind the faintly worthy indie sounds of the mid-80s, something like the The Icicle Works, The Mighty Wah! or an alternative universe where The Edge played guitar for Del Amitri. Referencing Razorlight in your promo material was probably not the best start, but you can hear little bits that remind you of Borrell: the choppy riffs or the Smith-y (Patti) snatch of reggae on "Say!"

Too MOR for the student disco and yet not quite striking enough to attract much radio play or mainstream interest, one suspects.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
