The House with all the Frames

Who knew a band this good could exist under my radar since 1990? I was 8 years old when Ireland's The Frames picked up instruments as a group. With their fantastic 2006 album The Cost hitting US shores February 20th, maybe they won't have to live under our radar anymore. They sound like a little bit of a mixup between a mellower Muse and Keane. These three songs here will show you the diversity I'm talking about. "Falling Slowly" belongs on a soundtrack. "The Cost" is a massively slow burning anthem. "Dreaming Awake" shows the softer side, but builds to a rousing finish. But you don't have to listen to me, just press play baby.
