You’d never guess, after listening to their current synth-rock single “Switch Hit Resistor,” that the band Woodward are from Detroit, not from across the Atlantic. While there is a similarity to The Killers’ over-the-top-ness, I get more of a Maximo Park / Datarock vibe from the foursome, with its slick new-wave touches and the lead singer’s reaching vocals. I’d suggest they get this song under Zane Lowe’s nose… it’s got BBC written all over it.
