In an Indie world where lo-fi is the order of the day, it's nice to occasionally hear something a bit less scuzzy and a little more polished.
Fortunately The Understudies are here to fulfil that need with their beautifully crafted indiepop. The quartet, who hail from London and Glasgow, count two singers, a boy (Brian) and a girl (Bree) in their midst and employ a variety of instruments, including a glockenspiel, violin and tambourine.
Using everything at their disposal to magnificent effect, they have produced a full rich sound that sits somewhere between the Beautiful South and the Tindersticks.
The Understudies tour dates listed on Ents24.com since Apr 2011.
