"If You Let Me Hold You" from The Solicitors

The Solicitors are the sound of the modern mods.  What does that mean?  It means that you'll hear influences of The Jam, Elvis Costello and Joe Jackson.  But this Melbourne-based international collective isn't aiming for pastiche.  This just that their version of today's guitar pop includes an emphasis on infectious rhythms equal to a buzzing guitar and clever lyrics.  Their releases to date have earned them praise (including on these pages) and a following.  And I think they'll be a lot bigger by the end of the year, because their debut album will be released in October via Popboomerang Records.  You can sample the upcoming LP via album track "If You Let Me Hold You".
