Regular visitors to The Metaphorical Boat will be aware that I am awaiting the inevitable mid-to-late 90s music resurgence with open arms. That is the reason why I was excited to hear about Iowa based group Emperors Club, and their fantastic track "Our Time."
On the surface, "Our Time" seems to be chanelling a more American set of 90s influences, with Stroke 9 being the closest comparison. However, once the strings (or faux-strings, I can't really tell) come in, you realise that this is in fact the gritter, indier twin of McAlmont & Butler's classic "Yes."
"Our Time" is taken from Emperor Club's self-titled EP, which will be released this Autumn.
