THE AFTERNOONS are from Cardiff, Wales and traffic in indie power-pop. I'd thought that their album ROCKET SUMMER was a 2007 release, but it turns out that it's been around since '05. It was new to me, in any case.
The title track evokes BIG STAR and down-tempo FOUNTAINS OF WAYNE, while "See You Again" is gently-chugging piano pop in the vein of KEANE. Won't set the world on fire, but nice enough stuff nevertheless.
