Locksley released the first track, "Darling It's True" from their forthcoming second full-length, Be In Love, yesterday. Carrying forward their bright fervored sound and trademark "oooo"'s that would make Paul McCartney proud, it's absolutely something you'll find yourself instantly finger-snapping and foot tapping along to. Little Steven Van Zandt called them the "Kings of Juvenile Delinquent Rock" on his radio show; we just call them instantly likable Brit-Pop.
Be In Love, out Jan 2010, is the band's follow up to 2007's most excellent Don't Make Me Wait. Read our review from that tour where they also acted as the backing band for Ray Davies.
They're out on the road doing east coast/south/south-west dates starting tomorrow.
