Voodoo Bandits: Empty Swimming Pool

English quartet Voodoo Bandits are a bit early with an upbeat song for a glorious Spring day, but Empty Swimming Pool covers all the bases of catchy indie rock with a pop twist. The lyrics don't make much sense, but according to songwriter Ben Donaldson may have something to do with the fact that his dog was trying to help him out. Counter culture imagery and having trouble to make definite decisions pop up every now and then. The interaction between the band's two guitarists is spot on, with the rhythm section egging them on and commandeering the spotlights themselves.

Voodoo Bandits:
Ben Donaldson: rhythm guitar, vocals
Corey Vaughan: lead guitar
Nathan Vaughan: drums
Charlotte Wilby: bass

Empty Swimming Pool is released via Superblue Records. Release date: March 13.
