‘Confetti’ is turning out to be my song of the week here.
Since scouring my inbox for new tips this morning, I’ve had a window open on the myspace page of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania’s 1,2,3, streaming each of the two songs in their player. The band consists oflong time friends Nic Snyder (vox, guitar & keys) and Josh Sickels (drums), originally started as a side project from the power punk outfit The Takeover UK. Since starting together just months ago, they’ve put out a7″ single through Brooklyn label Ooh La La and next month they’ll release their debut UK single, ‘Going Away Party’, Chess Club. Inspired byMercury-era Rod Stewart, Neil Young, Bacharach and his all-time favourite, Roy Orbison, Snyder channels a whole world of styles into his writings, singing with a nostalgic soulful brood.
Head to their myspace to hear ‘Confetti’, or stream it below in a montage of cute kittens.
