With a happy-go-lucky, indie-pop sound, Get Cubs’ debut album “To The Mountains” packs a punch.

It’s the kind of blend of guitar music and electronica that’s been popularised by the likes of Two Door Cinema Club and Everything Everything. Catchy riffs and boy-next-door lyrics give their music a playful, energetic vibe.

Stand-out tracks on the album are “Delilah”, with its Futureheads-worthy woah-oh-ay-oh’s, and the brilliant “Plastic Parade” which showcases Get Cub’s ability to write hilariously relatable and truthful lyrics.

The four piece band from Staffordshire have already been playlisted by BBC Wales and are planning a UK headline tour in early 2013.
