2011: Top Story: Faces of 2011 – The Minutes

A classic case of a band going away and waiting till they got it right, The Minutes a far more intriguing prospect than we might have imagined. An out and out power pop trio they maybe, but the Minutes have a lot more to them than just some loud guitars and catchy tunes – although those would have been enough to win us over. The excellent videos for last year’s ‘Secret History’ and ‘Fleetwood’ singles showed a creative intelligence at work and their debut album, now due on Fight Like Apes’ label Model Citizen, is already one of our favourites of the year.
