Codeine Velvet Club: Hollywood/I Am The Resurrection (single)

~ Friday, 11 December 2009
The Fratellis front man Jon Lawler is a busy man. Not content with shifting 2 million albums with his day job, he brings us his Phil Spector lounge inspired project backed with a deal from Island Records. If you are expecting the Fratellis, then your going to be disappointed.

Hollywood is a lush slab of pop that brings to mind ELO with a slice of the Pet Shop Boys thrown in for good measure. The vocal interaction with Lawler and the fresh talent of Lou Hickey gives the song a slight festive feel. The flip side is a cover of the Stone Roses classic I Am The Resurrection and pretty good it is to.

Their debut album is released on the 28th Dec and is already causing a stir with the radio lovies don't you know.
