In Isolation: The Wrong Girl
New Wave for the Noughties
In Isolation are a four-piece from Nottingham, UK, who have created an interesting indie sound which tips its hat to the post punk sounds of the 80s, with their debut track ‘The Wrong Girl’. It’s a damn catchy song which keeps you interested throughout with clever lyrics, subtle guitar licks and a good breakdown in the middle, complete with echoey backing vocals and a refreshingly non-predictable guitar solo.
With generous handfuls of punchy guitars, synthy backing and crisp, clear vocals you can hear the new wave influence, but it’s not direct – it’s like they’ve ransacked the 80s and pilfered it’s best bits, whilst adding their own modern indie sound.
They’re playing numerous gigs around Nottingham over the next few months (check their myspace for details), and as I currently hang my hat in that very city I personally can’t wait! See you there guys.
