Make believe

It was only a matter of time. When an Arcade Fire comes along and makes every band feel a very tangible sense of inadequacy by comparison, the only logical response is to take their blueprint and make it your own.

That might be a little harsh on Glasgow’s MAKE MODEL, who clearly have many original ideas, but with half-a-dozen members not shy in creating a veritable on-stage cacophony, there’s no denying their benchmark is made in Canada.

Make Model’s debut single The LSB is out now but even better is b-side Czech Neck, a hypnotic blend of swelling guitars and simultaneous guy/girl vocals.
