British Bands to Watch: Those Unfortunates

by thethreepennyguignol

When I was but a young thing, I was into music very like the kind that Those Unfortunates produce- the kind of light touch, bubbly, guitar-driven pop that’s present on their latest single, Letter Writing Man.

I’m a sucker for self-awareness, and this little tune has it to spare. In a landscape full of groups creating big, bombastic, stern-faced symphonies, there’s nothing wrong with indulging in something that brings me back to a time when I was happy with witty lyrics, a punchy chorus, and a little bit of British eccentricity. Another single is due next month, with the album planned for later this year, so give this a listen and get in early.
