Right this band is very interesting. Apparently(now dont quote me on this) but the members posted each other parts of songs which they put together. One of my cousin from the states gave me there album Give Up. There kinda electronic , emo stuff. BTW on the add for ask.com or something the song that is being sang i the background is Such Great Heights. Not their version but I think they wrote it. Check them out. Any of our American friends know about them?

I came about them by accident. I gave her some arctic monkeys demos so she gave me their album and The District Sleeps Alone Tonight single. There different from what I usually listen to and I cant get any of my mates into them "There Gay" is the usuall response. But its them missing out.

Never heard their songs before, but Ben Gibbard's from Postal Service and he's one of the genius behind Death Cab For Cutie who I find sheer poetry and I absolutely adore them.

Will be trying to get my hands on some of their tunes, though.
