Album: The Futureheads, Rant (Nul Records)
Sunday 01 April 2012
The most famous moment of The Futureheads' most celebrated song – a cover of Kate Bush's "Hounds of Love" – is its a cappella intro, so the idea of the Mackem quartet recording an a cappella album isn't too much for the imagination to handle.
Rant sees them coming on like a post-punk Kings Singers, tackling songs by Kelis, Black Eyed Peas and Sparks as well as Trad Arr folk standards; while their own "Thursday" employs 10cc-style multi-tracking. Wonderful.
