Film Jacket 35 - "Something You Should Do"

Being an American, when I saw that Film Jacket 35 is from Athens, I knew I had to listen to their new single. Athens has a long history of amazing music (R.E.M., The B-52's, Drive-By Truckers, Elf Power, etc.) and any band from Athens tends to be worth at least listening to. Well, turns out Film Jacket 35 is from Athens, Greece. Luckily for us their music is Athens, GA level good.

"Something You Should Do" combines early British melodic punk like the Buzzcocks with mid-90's jangly alternative. It's an unbeat, fun indie rock song, that sounds old school and current at the same time. Film Jacket 35 aren't reinventing music here, but when you nail a sound this perfectly and make it your own, there is absolutely no reason to.

You can watch the video for "Something You Should Do" below. The PR Foundation, the new album from Film Jacket 35, will be out in March. For more on Film Jacket 35, check them out on Facebook and Twitter.
