About five years ago I used to go to record stores in Cincinnati almost weekly to check for Scanners‘ albums. It took me awhile to realize I wouldn’t be able to find them in-store but that didn’t stop me from listening to the London-based band. When I was at South by Southwest a few weeks ago I was beyond excited to get reacquanited with Scanners and finally see them live. The song of the week is the title track off their new EP, Mexico. There’s a definite Arcade Fire vibe to the song which is lighter and brighter from their usual darker toned Indie Rock. However, it makes a great listen for Spring. Listen to “Mexico” here. Their 3rd album, Love is Symmetry, is due out June 10th.
