The Like released their debut album, Are You Thinking What I'm Thinking, in 2005 but it would be another 5 years before we were to get a follow up in 2010's Release Me. Produced by Mark Ronson, Release Me was quite a departure from their grunge lite debut. In the intervening 5 years they must have spent quite a bit of time soaking up the music of the best 60's girl groups with a fair bit of Blondie, The Go Go's and even some Voice Of The Beehive thrown into the mix. Yes, it does wear its influences proudly on its sleeve but that is no bad thing when it sounds as good as this. Melodic, hook laden and unashamedly retro, this is pop music of the highest quality, with some superb vocals courtesy of Z Berg.
