Track Of The Day #150: Solomon Grey – Firechild

Solomon Grey are, like a few right now, a little mysterious. They state their antecedents as London and Australia, and we’ll believe both of those given that this video for their debut single is currently gracing the front page of YouTube Australia. Unlike a lot of bands that we see growing up very publicly , this lot have arrived very fully formed indeed via a three year gestation period. Hell’s teeth, they’ve even got a whole album already recorded and tucked away apparently. There’s a lot of great synth / dance bubbling around the antipodes right now and this seems to be right at the top of the game. Even their own publicist calls it a ‘slick’ debut. We call it a great piece of moody pop music for a Thursday morning. Look below the video for the link to download the track for nil monnaie.
