French Kicks is not a traditional Rock & Roll band. Although they have elements of snarly garage rock, slick new wave, and giddy classic mod-pop, they remain completely unique. The four of them work together like draughtsmen creating musical architecture; a note is never wasted, a drop is never spilled. Their songs always seem to be on an angle hovering just at breaking point. They cut to the quick with lurching riffs and palpitating percussion but they are also cute and coltish and undeniably catchy. At heart, this is simple pop music, with hooks hookier than velcro and disarmingly pretty three-part harmonies.
