Chariots of Tuna

I know a good falsetto when I hear one, and Chariots of Tuna's singer Ben Morrs does it better than most. Have a listen to indiepop epic War Hero on the band's myspace page, and tell me that this sort of summer-y pop isn't just what you need a Monday that seems to have dragged on forever.

That name, of course, is a problem, but then there's plenty of daft-named bands around these days, isn't there? Yes, there is. So, let's accentuate the positive, and say that Chariots of Tuna fill that space left by fifty per cent of Beulah, and Belle and Sebastian before they turned into the Barron Knights.

If they don't come to the UK soon, I'll duff them up.
