The Cold War Kids

Anyone a fan of this band? I just discovered them a few days ago by accident (one of their videos was on in our breakroom). I ended up getting the CD Robbers and Cowards and it's pretty good. Very catchy.

Yeah it's a great album and a great band. I was thinking they were going to become bigger than they are currently..I mean they are still pretty big, they opened for Muse.

Yup, huge fan, Robbers and Cowards was one of my 3 favorite CDs when it came out a couple of years ago, 1 of those rare CDs IMO where there really isn't a bad song on it. They are a great, great live band, seen them 3 times.

Love the band. Every song on Robbers & Cowards is a winner. Yeah, I'm surprised they aren't hyped a bit more considering their similarities in sound to The White Stripes. Maybe it's a good thing they aren't super huge in the US though. I've always appreciated the struggling indie bands way more than the popular bands.

You mean the 'raw' sound right? I described them like that to friends - raw, unpolished, but great. She gave them a shot and agreed. Wolf Parade/Handsome Furs/Sunset Rubdown fall into this rough around the edges sound too and should be checked out.
