Cherubs - A Man Of No Importance
London based, Norwegian-British band Cherubs, have toured with the likes of The Libertines, The Departure, The Cribs and The Others. Having also gigged all over London for the past year or so, they now release their third single 'A Man Of No Importance' taken from their well received debut album 'Uncovered By Hearbeat'.
'A Man Of No Importance' starts off with some driving rythyms reminiscent of Franz Ferdinand and pilfers the stock guitar staple sound of Interpol towards the end. The production by Howard Gray (who produced Eighties Matchbox B-line Disaster) seems to be going for a live feel and although not immediately apparent if this is a good idea, on further listens the song fully presents itself as a token slab of quality and catchy art-punk with angular melodies and jangling guitars.
Cherubs have churned out a decent and professional single and it's worth picking up if you're a fan or have attended one of their excellent gigs and wish to hear more.
