Outro Introduces Oxford: Black Hats

Black Hats

In a city shrouded by a cloud of intelligentsia, math rock and deliberately innaccesible thinking man’s music it takes a smarter and braver band to break the mould and thrust post-punk shoutalong anthems more in the vein of Future of the Left or The Young Knives than Radiohead or Foals.

They’re described as a group of “Yob Savants” and you know I wouldn’t cover anyone where there would be even a slight risk of having to mention the Kaiser Chiefs or Hard-Fi so I feel I should reassure you that there is more going on here than an English answer to Drop Kick Murphy’s.

While BK might not promote themselves as being arbiters of academician music tracks like Blood and Space have elements that are borderline prescient. The muscianship is in the class of the sadly defunkt Dartz! and i’m thinking here we might finally have a worthy replacement. Thank Oxford for Black Hats!

Go “like” them on facebook and stick around for news, releases and shows.
