Neo Retros – The High-Rise In The Sunshine - * Single of the day * release date 3/4/2011

A couple of firsts with this single of the day. I'm pretty sure I haven't reviewed a Polish band yet and my Sunday choices are usually towards the avant garde end of the spectrum because, good or bad, they make a bigger impression the first couple of times you hear them..

This week however a track made an impact on me with no bells or whistles just because it's a damn good song. Neo Retros were formed in Warsaw last year and The High-Rise In The Sunshine is their début release. It's a straight up soft rock ballad but to my ears it sounds gorgeous and the sort of track that could crack the mainstream with enough exposure.
