Love Thy Neighbour: Major Leagues - Endless Drain

Tuesday 16th July, 2013 9:17AM

We're continuing to swap great alternative music with our Australian counterparts, Who The Hell. Today they introduce us to Brisbane-based upstarts Major Leagues.

Brisbane’s Major Leagues sometimes get stuck with that big yellow SLACKER label (after which I assume they’re shuffled into a corner with every other Slacker and forced to smoke weed and watch Adventure Time). However, what strikes me most about their new track ‘Endless Drain’ is how efficient, driven and smart it is.

The verses are made up of the familiar rhymes; “I was looking for the one/right underneath the sun/ sifting through the sand/ tryin’ to find a plan”. The upbeat façade doesn’t hang around long though, giving in to a droning, swirling chorus.

At just over two minutes, the song doesn’t bother settling. The simplicity of the lead guitar line keeps everything light and fun, while some clever drumming propels the track forward to its open-ended final line, “I was looking for the one…”.

A great track from a young band that will definitely be making waves soon.
