The Hours: See the light (2009), Is Good Ltd.

Para ser sincero con vosotros, he de deciros que no conocía a esta banda de Londres, y había leído algo sobre su segundo lanzamiento. La verdad es que lo que leí prometía, pero el resultado dista mucho de ser de nuestro agrado. Desde luego si eres entusiasta de la música de Coldplay, de la afección sonora de Keane o de las poses de Depeche Mode, habrás encontrado en este See the light tu disco. Si no es así, haz como yo, escúchalo un par de veces y pasa de largo.
“Only this time, with the help of legendary producer Flood and a full band, and aided by the art, inspiration and (to be frank) dosh of old pal Damien Hirst, The Hours pair have created a bigger, bolder, better record. It’ll blow your ears off and blast your heart. It’s that good. The album was mixed by Cenzo Townshend (Kaiser Chiefs, Snow Patrol, Blur,).’It’s a message to me personally,’ explains Genn in relation to the album title, alluding to a past with more than its share of (self-induced) difficulties, ‘and it’s a message to everyone. We’re living in dark times. The song See The Light is about hope; it’s a plea to hold on in times that are difficult. I think it’s important that we all look for positive things.’Having made a brief return to the live circuit last year with dates as support to Oasis, a Little Voice gig as guests to Kasabian and a trio of intimate headline dates, plans are afoot for The Hours to embark upon more sustained touring around the release of See The Light. Fronted by Antony Genn and Martin Slattery, the band’s line-up has now extended to a seven-piece. (The Passion of Indie Music).
