Artist: People Like You
Label: Topshelf Records
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 28 July 2017

People Like You will release their sophomore album, Verse, via Topshelf Records. The five-piece Boston-based band formed in 2014 from the short-lived emo/math punk band, I Kill Giants, which included guitarist/vocalist Chris Lee-Rodriguez and drummer Sander Bryce...

People Like You are an indie jazz band who, with a lot of raw energy, knock the hell out of the belief that jazz is just for stuffy old farts. It's like a cross between jazz and indie rock.

The LP contains 11 tracks (37 min, 26 sec) and there's plenty of variety from the rock based 'The Baker' to the jazz trumped infused 'Thumbnail'. The three 'Kneeplay' instrumental tracks bring jazz kicking and screaming into the present.

The strange mix of rock and jazz may not be to everyone's taste, but for me it represents a welcome merging of two different genres that works really well.
