The More Assured

London Calling: The More Assured

The More Assured

Orange pop, pink pop, green pop: everyone loves a drop of pop and this band are no exception. But a band cannot live by pop alone. So this band spice it up a touch. They rock out. And, gosh, they've been known to inject...

... Okay, when we say "inject", it was a medical procedure. For a sea anemone sting. But it was in IBIZA!! And just moments away from the band's performance alongside the Fratellis at this year's Ibiza Rocks!!

The More Assured are justifiably excited. Not only have they played at that Ibiza Rocks event, but they're now signed to London indie label What?! Records and are about to release a new single - and London Calling track - All In Your Head.

They know what they like too. Influences are pure and simple. Songs. good songs. The More Assured call it 'indie pop desire'. They've got a penchant for substance over style, though you wouldn't know it if you saw them.

Don your shades and check out the website (myspace.com/themoreassured). You'll be faced with some pretty eye-catching technicolour, not to mention scrolling down, a lot more besides.

art-pop or pop-art

Oh yes, and they do music! Al, Slinky, Matt and Steve currently have four top tunes online, including single, All In Your Head.

The More Assured

The More Assured hang out

Sounding a lot like they look, though possibly more art-pop than pop-art,  the band spout up-tempo pop numbers like there's no tomorrow.

Favourite song to cover? Pop anyone? Yes, it is apparently Sing Sing The Pop Song by little known group Jackson and The Jezebels. Genius lyrics include, I like to sing the 'pop, pop, poppity pop song'!

To see how much pop you can handle, check out the band's myspace.com/themoreassured. See right for all links.
