The Upper Room (2006)

from my September 2006 music journal...

The Upper Room ( a band of four guys from Brighton). Their debut album is released by Sony titled "Other People's Problems". Lately I have been getting rather bored with new young bands because everybody sounds the same (either that or I am getting old and everything young people do is starting to sound the same lol). These guys do sound like somebody but the glory of it is that I couldn't care less! They are rather uplifting (despite some of the lyrics, one song is titled "kill, kill, kill" but it isn't a song that makes you want go postal), their sound is tight, the singing is great. This feeling reminds me of the first time I listened to Coldplay.
