That cranefly will be the next big thing is indisputable. The only things that are not clear are when, where, for whom and quite how it will all come about. In the meantime, the studio session and gig photos are great – if you’ve ever been in a band, you’ll know why – and the downloads will give you a flavour of something a little different. Though in no way musically the same, to my lo-fi ears cranefly are tapping the melodic vein of earlier times in much the same way as Grandaddy (listen to cranefly’s Knocked Down and then Grandaddy’s Pull the Curtains) has in the US and, to a lesser extent, Wolfmother are doing in Australia.
