Sleeper Agent. A band I discovered through Cage the Elephant, with whom they share the home town of Bowling Green, Kentucky. As Cage are one of my favorite bands at the moment, I was thankful that their musical recommendation didn't disappoint.
The album comprises of 12 fairly simple tracks, bursting with melody, hooks and brightness. The band's vocal responsibility lies with Alex Kandal and Tony Smith (also guitar); a boy-girl team up which perfectly compliments the poppy, high-energy music, courtesy of Justin Wilson (drums), Lee Williams (bass), Josh Martin (Guitar) and Scott Gardner (keys). If you like indie style outfits with a pop edge, you will more than likely be on the right street with Sleeper Agent, I can't say enough as to just how likeable they are. The only reason I knocked a star off is because Sleeper Agent are part of a scene which has become frankly monotonous and in general this album isn't anything groundbreaking, but they are still a shining light. Personal highlights for me are the ridiculously catchy "Force a smile" and the most edgy song on the album "These white blinds". Definitely would recommend these guys and when the chance arrives, I will go watch them live.
