I'm going to see pains of being pure at heart in a month only to experience seeing a noise band live for the first time. A lot of their songs are honestly too tame for my liking. They have a much softer and even more poppy sound compared to Times New Viking. Nonetheless they are also very good. I have a soft spot for nicely structured pop songs with catchy melodies.
It seems that noise or noise pop or lo-fi pop, whatever you call it, has become a important trend in indie in the past couple of years. Personally I find it hard to listen to any Sonic Youth album from beginning to end. However there is a certain beauty to be discovered in these new groups. I just don't get most of it.
Times New Viking:
There are no good quality videos of them which makes lo-fi which already sounds shitty to begin with, even harder to listen to. The girl in the band is hot btw.
High places. They're a lo-fi electronics popish band if thats possible
