Celebrating a bratty, tongue-in-cheek viewpoint and a spunky indie punk style similar to Art Brut, while applying an assortment of instruments akin to Architecture in Helsinki, Los Campesinos are a six piece indie pop band formed in Cardiff in 2006. When the band first emerged on the indie pop scene, they were pigeonholed with the 'twee pop' movement, as a result of their lively, joyous music. The band have worked hard since their 2008 debut, 'Hold On Now, Youngster', to shake the image of this and have now adopted a new darker guise. They cite obsessions with death and football as their influences.
