Reading biogs is always funny.
I think I have read thousands of biogs so far and they have all one thing in common : if it's up to the bands then they all will be stars within some months.
Nothing against such an attitude because if the band doesn't believe in themselves then who will anyway?
If it depends on this Liverpool-based band then they will be stars too and so far they have collected some awards from which no one has ever heard but let's get to the essence : how do they sound like?
Well they're not the new Bunnymen or the new Beatles and that's only good as I'm not in the mood to hear a new Beatles anyway.
The Arkanes have chosen an American rocksound that comes close to The Black Crowes, only much more melodic.
Couldn't help thinking that a track like "Schitzophonic" ripps off the guitarchord from Inspiral Carpets' "I want you"...
When the record ended it felt good and I couldn't help laughing that they probably won't change the world... (but seeing your comments it looks like they made it in the UK or the US, so cheers for that!)
