I love this band! Their great. People in the UK have probably heard of them but the song "I bet you look good on the dancefloor" will be released in Australia soon. Good song.

I love them too!
I've never felt this way about a band since the libertines ..
I saw them when they supported Franz Ferdinand and they were awesome!

they are great. 'i bet you look good on the dancefloor' is a good song. they are like a modern day Pulp cause their lyrics are quirky

Alas...destined to become the Bloc Party of 2006 - not sure whether that's a good thing or not.

I'm listening to the Arctic Monkeys right now ...
I find Bloc Party... pretty boring. It's weird to compare to them, since they don't even sound the same. To me, the monkeys are more like the new Libertines.

^I mean the fact that Arctic Monkeys will become the new 'IT' and hyped band of 2006 just as Bloc Party was for 2005. I don't mean to say they sound the same.

I don't think their sound is very original..to me it's the Strokes + Bloc Party + Franz Ferdinand and..don't know. It's alright though just not anything new.

the sound might not me be new but what makes me love them (even more) is that they came from no where and went really big, without any help from recordlabels and what so ever.
and the way alex writes the songs! he's just a genius when it comes to lyric and just the fact that they write about everyday life and not just about love, like many other bands do.
my fav lyris must be 'I don't think your special, I don't think your cool. you're probably just alright but under these lights you look beautiful and Im struggling - I can't see through you fake tan'
GENIUS, I tell you!
