Don't underestimate the power of a punch
The topic of the first music post I ever wrote here was Bearsuit, a wild and woolly Norwich sextet that consistently delivers excitingly peculiar pop punk. Since then, I've kept my fingers crossed, prayed to the indie gods and sent the band whining little emails of wheeeeen?. As in, wheeeeen are you going to cross the pond and come visit us? I know there's a million of you and the airfare will be brutal, but trust me Bears, it will be worth your furry time.
Foxy Boxer is a terrific example of why I adore this band. Much like the titularly cited fighting ladies, Bearsuit distracts you with prettiness. All those opening coos and woos surround keyboard and guitar lines that become, steadily and subtly, hard little jabs. Those cutie pie chorines aren't playing, they WILL bruise you. A sweet little knock-out.
