Scams – “Lifeboats”

Scams are a Leeds based, indie rock band with a quirky, light hearted sound. Their latest single “Lifeboats” (released on September 10th) is taken from their new album “Add and Subtract” which will be released on 8th of October through Devil Duck Records.

I’m sure I will not be the first to compare this single to Vampire Weekend’s sound- the intertwined guitar melodies and syncopated, jumpy rhythms are a more than a little familiar. However Scams manage to put their own stamp on this “Lifeboats”. The track has a great melody that is instantly memorable and extremely catchy- coming in at just under 3 minutes this song has all of the qualities to make it a guaranteed radio hit.
