From the UK I present to you the Fiji Dots! A modern rock sound yet encompassing a wink and a nod to such classic bands as Rainbow and Queen, the Fiji Dots are full of bombast and vigor. Taboo is a stand out for me but I really enjoyed the A Few Years with those great backing vocals. The vocals in fact stand out for me as they combine hard rock swagger with a genuine taste of a melody. And they get bonus points for saying they sound like “something other than indie.” Good stuff.
