Athlete - Superhuman Touch
------------At some point in our lives, we wished we were athletes - professional or not, there's a sport we never totally cleaned house with (cross country - yes, I am living proof you can suck at running) or a practice we skipped here and there. Even if sports aren't your thing, you can still be a fan of athletes or Athlete, which I prefer.
Athlete are a four-piece band from the United Kingdom who've been around since 2003, producing five albums and collectively selling over a million copies in their career. Not bad for any band in these digital days.
Their latest EP entitled The Getaway, has flavors of electro-pop and indie rock that sounds like the Levi wearing baby of Phoenix, Aqualung and Snow Patrol. "Superhuman Touch" has a poppy button-pushing dancebeat in a medley keyboards and synthesizers. This song is also available on Athlete's 2009 full-length release, Black Swan.
P.S. For those of you who joined any group along the lines of "I Heard of (insert band) Before They Were Famous," I'm going to be a sassy little tart and tell you no one cares so you shouldn't bother with it.
