Locksley - "All Over Again"

Imagine taking the guitar sounds of The Hives and dropping in an American lead singer with a Brooklyn, NY mindset and you'll have a little bit of an idea what Locksley sound like.

They've got a very retro sound going, with the pop sensibilities of old pop rock bands, and their simplistic straight-ahead rock reminds of of The Libertines, just without the burglary, fighting, drugs, or the horrendous PR disaster that is Pete Doherty.

Locksley aren't signed to any label, but they're re-releasing their 2007 debut Don't Make Me Wait on Fontana Records on September 9th with 2 bonus tracks. Check out their MySpace for more details. I've been enjoying the tracks on their player for the past 45 minutes or so, it's actually quite refreshing.

They've toured with the likes of OkGo, the Dandy Warhols, The Hives, Rooney, and even Hanson, leading to the interesting live cover video posted below of AC/DC's "It's a Long Way to the Top." Give them a listen, they're an interesting little trip.
