2. What kind of tune is Waste A Moment?

Waste A Moment is classic Kings Of Leon; helter skelter rock'n'roll with brooding vocals and sweet release in the redemptive chorus. The tune doesn't overstay it's welcome either, clocking in at the magic three.

4. What have the lazy bastards in the press said about Waste A Moment

“Stadium ready rock” – Much. 

5. Which bands lent their majesty to Kings Of Leon?

Some of the Kings Of Leon main influences are The Strokes, The Pixies, The Rolling Stones, The Clash and Wilco. 

6. Why should I give Waste A Moment a lash?

Waste A Moment is the kind of song that takes the feeling of ennui and stands it on it's head. Satisfying in the extreme. It is also proof one of indies biggest bands remain on point.

7. What are the other Kings Of Leon biggies?

Sex On Fire is massive and good for it. Use Somebody is just the same and Radioactive rounds out an outstanding triumvirate. 

8. Any more words peanut?

Walls is produced by Markus Dravs who has been at the controls for The Maccabees, Mumford & Sons, Arcade Fire and Coldplay.

“She’s a little burner, burner, gonna throw you to the flame”

Piano Club are an indie electro-pop band from Belgium. Started in 2007 they have one album, an E.P. and a single to their names. Piano Club are influenced by bands like E.L.O. Blondie, Yeasayer, MGMT and Metronomy. Ain't No Mountain High (2012) is from the E.P. of the same name and is not a Marvin Gaye cover. Ain't No Mountain High brings Californian sunshine indie, like The Mowglis, to space synths in a marriage of extreme convenience. Special.

Wind in my hair, but you’re not there”
