Being There tick all the right boxes for UK band to watch. They’ve got a great lead single (17), they’ve got a sound (think hazy 90’s alternative chopped up with some more modern pop-focused influences) that while relevant to the current UK indie scene is still unique enough to set them a neccessary length apart from it, and they’ve got BUZZ (NME, BBC Radio, the UK blogosphere are all in support). Check out the “Boys Don’t Cry-y” lead track and vid for “17” below and let us know what you think.
