'70's disco returns in Stars of CCTV, which mixes '80s, '90s, and '00s for giggles; and the new wave post punk rock continues. Why let it die? Why not form a band tomorrow and join the fun? Everybody's doing it, so why not some good old boys from Middlesex?
Picture Bloc Party and Kaiser Chiefs with more of a Jaybirds "Love Train" thing going, or what Franz Ferdinand and the Killers would've sounded like live at Studio 54. They combine these sounds with your run-of-the-mill dance beats, modern guitar and percussion, and maybe updated vocals? You wouldn't know it though by listening to "Move on Now", which is rooted firmly in '60s songwriting and '70s driven piano ballads. Oh well.
Regardless of some interesting attempts to sound "different" and "better" (and I do note the effort) it all seems fairly consistent with current acts of this type, and it ultimately comes down to the listener. If you really need yet another band from England to add to your music collection that poses as modern rockers that "doesn't claim to be a rock band" and plays their own material through borrowed riffs and collected nuggets from yesteryear(s), than Hard-Fi is waiting for you.
