I’ve heard rumblings from this outfit for quite some time – they formed in 2006 – but it’s only been in the past few weeks that I finally took the plunge and listened to them. And what an adventure it has been. The ABC Club reminds me of all of the greats that got me hooked on indie music in the ’90s. The guitars are all very rooted in the Smiths school, but lyrically they’re not so self-indulgent, adroitly weaving imagery in the same way that Belle and Sebastian does.

Now that the band are back on track, their debut single is slated to be released next month. “Thieving Magpie” is currently available to be pre-ordered from the Rough Trade site.
