Birmingham’s Kyoto Drive may not be well known to you right now but that might be about to change thanks to their new album The Approach. They have a handy knack of penning instantly catchy pop rock tunes not unlike You Me At Six but with an earnest charm that has you easily warming to them. Pretension free, bundles of energy, more hooks than a fishing tackle shop, and a fresh, carefree approach to songwriting, this is the ideal record for a summer’s day. This is solid, no nonsense entertainment, doing exactly what it says on the tin.
