Our verdict: This is a rock band! Formed from the ashes of Tropics – a band we were quite partial to – they have become slightly odder in their melodies and there seem to be more melodies on what evidence we’ve heard so far, which we are very much down with. The great news is that there’s still a lot of rocking to be done by Exes and so they’ve let us put their new song, ‘Reptilian’ up on this site. That’s bloody good. Here’s a wee interview with Jodie Cox too. Read, listen, enjoy.

Over the last few months, Dragon-obsessed Norwegians,Keep Of Kalessin have got a certain amount of publicity- and inevitably a heavy dose of pillorying – since they announced their attempt to become Norway’s entry to this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. While unsuccessful (albeit by a narrow margin), a band as good and accessible as Keep Of Kalessin deseve to be much bigger than they are, and the exposure they’ve gained might help propel them to where they truly belong. Following this all up with yet another excellent album in the shape of Reptilian will certainly help secure the affections of any new fans all this extra attention has generated.
