The Maccabees - Love You BetterThe Maccabees – Love You Better

The Maccabees have been busy working on the follow up to their debut album ‘Colour It In’ the album was one of my favourite indie releases of 2007 and also featured in many people’s top 10 releases of 2007, well work has now been completed on the bands second album ‘Wall Of Arms’ which is due for release on the 4th May.

The band have already released ‘No Kind Words’ as a free download to give the fans a taste of what to expect from the album and they are now ready to release the first proper single ‘Love You Better’ on the 27th April.

‘Love You Better’ sounds like a true Maccabees song, things sound as good hear as they did 2 years ago when the band released their debut album, the song starts with a great piece of guitar work which is best listened to very loud just to get the maximum effect from it, front man Orlando Weeks has an amazing set of vocals that are so catchy and repetitive, they set the pace for the song and after a couple of listens everyone will have “I will love you better, I will love you better, I will love you better, I will love better” running around there head.

The Maccabees are back and it feels like they haven’t really been away, they are still at the high standard that they were at for their debut album, ‘Love You Better’ is a top class song, it’s like classic Maccabees just that slight bit more mature, I for one can’t wait for the release of their second album ‘Wall Of Arms’.
