The Brit List: Summer of London – Music
Style: Indie Rock
Members: Orlando Weeks, Hugo White, Felix White, Rupert Jarvis, Sam Doyle
What’s the Story: The Guardian recently dubbed the five-piece from Brighton “the last of the great indie guitar bands.” Their frenetic guitars and paradoxically strong yet quivery vocals make even the coolest of indie kids uncross their arms and hit the dance floor. Check out their ridiculously catchy single, “Pelican.”
Video Pick: Gotta love those BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge covers! Watch The Maccabees struggling to keep their cool during their rendition of The Black Eyed Peas’ “Boom Boom Pow.”
What’s Next: Catch these guys supporting Florence and the Machine for her North American tour in the fall! Dates here.
