missFlag

Thursday, November 9 by jumpmonger23

missFlag is a band from Isreal who I stumbled upon when I was looking for a fix of coldplay/keane type music. That should give you a good enough idea of their sound and the such. So far they've only released a 5-track EP, with a full album due out in November (not sure on the release date).

One thing that's kind of odd is reading their blog, and the lead guitarist (Assa Bukelman) is writing about how he was teaching a guitar lesson and walking the dog. Such "regular" and "ordinary" things. All this while in possibly a years time they could be a huge band, given the successes of keane and coldplay to date and their similiar sound.

Their live reviews are good, but they've only played a handful of US shows in Minnesota and LA. If myspace is any indication (36763 friends), they're gaining steam.

Check out their official site and use the built in player there to stream the first single "to infinity".

Cool, I dig it. I've recently been listening to the Radiohead and Shane & Shane I got from you a while ago.
