The Aeroplanes - Somedays/Down Low

Not much to report on these rather middling slices of rock n roll, but 'Down Low' is the more enjoyable track of the two, sounding like The Coral having a stab at a Kings Of Leon song, while the chugging, insistent 'Somedays' feels like it's constantly nudging towards a crescendo that, sadly, never arrives. The overall effect is of the type of support band you see at a gig and remark to your mate that "they were alright". Later on, you head to the bar, never once noticing that the guy stood next to you in the queue is the singer.
