Athletes In Paris – Echoes louder than voices

There is an unfortunate phenomenon that has seen the North East tourism increase four fold in the last year – I am of course talking about Geordie S…….. Geordie Sh………Geordie Sho…….. I’ve tried but I can’t do it, the show is too horrendous for words ……………….

In light of this, all hail to Athletes In Paris, who offer more than a little respite from the reality nightmare.  The five piece, North East indie popsters are set to release Echoes Louder Than Voices on The Animal Farm record label. With influences from Stevie Wonder to Friendly Fires, Athletes in Paris will surely be bringing home the gold for us this summer where our Athletes in London will no doubt fail.

If the latest offering from the North East can hold their nerve and avoid dropping the baton handed to them by Maximo Park and The Futureheads, the road ahead looks bright. Let’s hope it’s bright enough to banish “reality” from our little boxes in the corner of our living room.
