Hairband - "Bubble Sword"

Hailing from Glasgow, Hairband is a five piece band that have crafted this unique sound, which is nearly impossible in the rock world at this point. "Bubble Sword" has some pretty strong roots in post punk, but there is something more organic and almost roots based in the song. While post punk typically has a distinct groove, "Bubble Sword" has a wildly fun dance feel to it. It's almost like if And the Kids... went post punk. You end up with an incredibly joyous song with just enough of an edge to avoid being saccharine. 

You can listen to "Bubble Sword" below. Hairband's self titled debut will be out on October 19 on Monorail Records. You can pre-order a copy here. For more on Hairband, check out their Facebook and Twitter.
