For the endless deluge of indie bands out there that have tried to follow through on the sounds like Talking Heads witty world pop mantle (see Dirty Projectors, Vampire Weekend), UK transplant Theme Park are looking like the best challenge yet, though with an updated sound. It’s really “Milk” one of their first singles from their upcoming debut album (due out in August) , that nails down the frenetic David Byrne vocal with some nice energetic dance-floor indie pop a la Hot Chip. However, if “Jamaica”, their latest single proves anything, Theme Park is no flash in the pan and they know how to write a catchy summer hook.
