    I'm really digging this dreamy ambient pop foursome from New Zealand. I'm only just getting into them recently but after getting a song for free by them on I-tunes I'm addicted to it and trying to explore more. This is the most current and subsequently only album (2010 release) by them thus far:

    Passive Me, Aggressive You
    [​IMG]

    The I-tunes track I heard by them was:

    Young Blood


    Some other tracks I've heard tonight that I liked were:

    Punching In A Dream


    The Sun (Live)

    The pretty album art is enough convincing for me to sample this stuff and possibly get a hold of it. :grinthumb

    I'll check out some songs when i'm not currently listening to something, and will decide whether to buy an album or not. Though, 99% I say that, I usually do buy the album :heheh:

    I stumbled upon Passive Me, Aggressive You some months ago and I liked what I heard, and before I knew it "Young Blood" started popping up everywhere, on the Australian charts, in a Strongbow advert and now from my good friend Sooty! :grinthumb It's a quality album though, plenty of good songs on it :D

    Awesome! Tell me what other tracks you like. :grinthumb I've been sampling more and I do like it. I used to only make threads for stuff I own but I'm finding way to much music to get it all at once. :heheh: I still need to buy While Heaven Wept. I made the thread after first hearing them and Harkat bought the album before mew as well. :heheh:
