A Drink And A Quick Decision

A Drink And A Quick Decision by Grand National
Released: Jun 2007
Label: Recall Records
Three years passed between Grand National's debut and this follow up, but it doesn't sound like the London duo was at a loss for ideas. The borrowed lyric (from Hall and Oates' "She's Gone") that gives the album its title projects a certain melancholy, but it's Beta Band-style gloom (particularly on "Tongue"), in that there's always sunlight peeking through the darkness. Occupying similar territory to Hot Chip and early Beck, Grand National's catchy songs are proving to be essential listening in the electronic indie pop world.
