NO MORE KINGS Astonish (2007)

Based around Pete Mitchell (vocals) and Nial Robins (guitar/bass/keys/percussion/cello/programming), they have produced a debut album that covers many musical bases and in their at times off the wall lyrics they reminded me of XTC. Vocally Pete Mitchell has a very melodious voice that sometimes reminds you of James Morrison and Lenny Kravitz.

Plenty to enjoy on here including 'Zombie Me', with its hilarious zombie chorus - 'All The Zombies in the house go 'Yeah', classic! It also features a very catchy chorus and is an airplay friendly tune for sure.

'Sweep The Leg' has been gaining the band exposure on You Tube with the song's accompanying video and again it is a very accessible pop rocker. The band do jump around musically from the funked up 'Go Breathed' to 'Mr B' which is like the Beatles jamming with Lenny Kravitz! Whilst 'This' is a beautifully composed and arranged song, bringing to mind the best moments of Simon & Garfunkel.

A very varied and enjoyable debut album from a talented duo (backed by other musicians as and when required). An album that reveals unexpected treats with each listen, highly recommended.
