Label Fandango releases a new 7" single today in the form of capital - there are no capital letters in capital - a band who number five and reside in Eastbourne. Their love of The Cure, Tears For Fears and ‚ÄòBoy‚Äô-era U2 with a cannily modern radio-friendly sound saw them being chosen by BBC 6 Music‚Äôs Steve Lamacq as his Favourite New Band fully six weeks before their debut single (this one here) was released. Producer Andy Green (Keane, Scouting For Girls, The Feeling) has also contacted the band offering his services.
