Oxegen 2010 - Bi-polar Empire

Post categories:

ATL | 11:24 UK time, Saturday, 10 July 2010

2FM Hot Press Academy, Friday 9th July, 11.25pm.

Describe in a Tweet: Profoundly ordinary, but likeable indie.

What Happened: After the emotional maelstrom of Villagers, perhaps a spot of light relief was in order, which would explain the presence of Bi-polar Empire. The indie-pop four peice jangle their way through a set of pleasantly unnassuming indie, causing a small but dedicated band of revellers to go jungle crazy.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with this kind of thing, and the guys do it very well, but there's just something so completely average and unadventurous about this kind of music, that one's attention did begin to wander from time to time.

Crazy in Love: The band's drummer could possibly be the most enthusiastic person ATL has witnessed all weekend. Rain, nor hail, shall dampen his spirit. For those about to rock, we salute him.

99 Problems: A little bit of movement on-stage wouldn't have gone amiss.

Oxegen Rating: 5/10
