Anyone lucky enough to have seen this eight-piece band live will understand that the kind of chemistry and energy these guys foster is rare, if not close to impossible to find elsewhere.
And while they're constantly being compared to other frenetic, heavily peopled groups like the Arcade Fire and Broken Social Scene, to continue drawing those parallels is unfair and lazy. The music is characteristically indie rock/pop, but what really sets it apart is how the collective seem to weave their ideas together in a frighteningly effortless way.
Organ and Wall Of Snow find them building on superb melodies with triumphant brass, swirling organs and layered, naked vocals. Though most songwriters who try to cram a trillion ideas into four-minute songs end up with poorly thought-out train wrecks, TGID have written a mature and beautifully varied record.
TGID play Sneaky Dee's tonight (Thursday, June 7) at 11 pm.
