This Texas based band Ashbury Keys has been nominated for the best pop/rock band by Houston Press Awards,"Growing up" is their 3rd independently released album and it?s produced by Alan Doss of Galactic Cowboys fame who also played keyboards on the album. They play powerpop the British way with lots of vibes from bands like Oasis,Stereophonics and Supergrass but with a little American touch to it. I must say that it?s quite an enjoyable album but what?s the deal with the Elvis cover of "Suspicious minds"?!,totally unnecessary if you ask me........a song that lightens up things a bit is the Cheap Trick-ish "Holiday" (bring out the cake lads). They are truly worthy a check up.
