I really like Snow Patrol. Their albums Eyes Open, A Hundred Million Suns, and hits compilation Up Til Now are filled with amazing music that is worth listening to – more so than the oveplayed, played out “Chasing Cars.” I love “Chocolate” from The Last Kiss Soundtrack, as well as “Just Say Yes,” “It’s Beginning to Get to Me” and “You Could be Happy.”
Their new single “Called Out in the Dark” is really good and a great example of why lead singer Gary Lightbody’s vocal style reminds me of David Byrne’s, from of course the infamous Talking Heads. You tell me if you hear the similarities.
