So it's the same old story then? Well not quite, because 'She' is a cracking tune. Yeah it's not different from what you've heard before, but this is anything but dull. It picks elements of post-punk, '90s indie and the more recent guitar groups, but it avoids getting lost in the fog of other bands by simply being a better tune. Black Sands seem like a band with something about them, something that identikit indie bands don't usually have, and that is individuality; something that comes naturally, as the song, as good as it is, is all borrowed parts. So we're left to conclude that these guys are a cut above the competition, and will hopefully give Great British indie fans something to look forward to again.
