10 for 2013: #4 – Theme Park

Keen listeners of the There Goes the Fear podcast will have heard me gush over them before, but Theme Park are definitely one to watch for the coming year. The line-up including everyone’s favourite ginger guitarist, Oscar Manthorpe, a pair of handsome Haughton twins and Louis “the H is silent” Bhose.

The London foursome have been busy this year, delivering their Talking Heads-esque vibes to numerous festivals and supporting the likes of Bloc Party, Bombay Bicycle Club and Florence and the Machine. ‘Two Hours’, the title track on their recently released EP, definitely showcases the kind of energetic, light guitar pop that they produce so well. The London equivalent to the summery pop that Vampire Weekend have popularised in the last few years.

I can see 2013 being the year that Theme Park stop supporting bands and start being the main event.
