Flashguns - Passions Of A Different Kind

London four-piece Flashguns have been working hard over the past months, touring with the likes of Bombay Bicycle Club, Mona and currently Dananananaykroyd to build a following ahead of the release of their forthcoming debut album. That as yet unnamed album is scheduled for release this summer, but if you can't wait that long it is preceded by this single.

Passions Of A Different Kind is a big sweeping anthem, impressive in its ambitions for a such a new, young band. The guitars have sort of Good News-era Modest Mouse jauntiness to them, but the track has more energy than something like Float On. And the chorus, which seems to take up most of the second half of the song, has been packed with more hooks than your average pirate convention.

Check out the video for Passions below, and keep your eyes peeled for Flashguns playing a venue near you soon.
