Athletic Ability

Some bands have a weird gift to combine a normal sounding chord progression and a normal sounding melody into this totally sparkling pop hook. Athlete is one of those bands. Sometimes they try too hard, contributing to their occasional downfall, but when they just go with it, they'll churn out a really great catchy tune. Tourist topped the British charts in only the second week of its release. They'll throw you some curveballs too. ie: yelling "chorus" before the chorus on "Westside", atonal feedback on "Tourist" and random sounds across both records. I like that.
