Better late than never...

How I Became the Bomb were The Guardian's Band of the Day (for June 4). Nashville bands continue to get love across the pond. Hmmm, let's see if they open with some sort of reference to how (gasp!) there is more than country music in Tennessee...

HIBTB are an atypical Tennessee band. Yee-haw redneck country boys they are not. They dress like Edwardian gents. The vocal yelps are pure Clap Your Hands via The Cure, while the tech-melodies are more Tokyo Police Club. It's synth-indie, or indie-synth. Sindie. Inth. They Might Be Electronic, anyone? Put it this way: We Are Scientists might as well pack up and go home ("They already have!" - Keith Murray's mum).
Doh!
