Because LIFE are an immensely talented British pop-rock band led by a pair of brothers (Mez Sanders-Green on lead vocals and Mick Sanders on lead guitar), there will be inevitable comparisons to Oasis. But “Take Off With You” and “Money,” the tracks that comprise the Hull quartet’s new double A-side single, are more like a young Arctic Monkeys trading Alex Turner’s snarling wit for the pop shine of the 1975, but without the saccharine boy-band feel to it. This is young, fun, fast-paced, urban pop-rock, and I fervently recommend it to you. LIFE released videos for both songs earlier this year before they signed to Grand Jury, the new label that also signed Twin Peaks this year. Watch both clips below, preferably at a high volume.
The “Take Off With You” / “Money” single is out now digitally via Grand Jury and will get physical release in early 2015. Purchase the digital version here. (Going the Songs Of Innocence route with the single art, I see.)
