We are just flies - Dark Sparks

We first came across Dark Sparks when they provided the local support to Good Shoes and Wild Palms at the Leadmill in Sheffield before Christmas. The sparse crowd were treated to a very accomplished set which started, albeit a little timidly, by this song "We are just flies". The band remind me very much of The Young Knives, with a Noel Fielding-esque front man in Leigh Greenwood. The best song of a darkly-entertaining set was "Picture without sound" which Leigh promised to make available free on their website once they had recorded it early in 2010, so watch this space, Dark Sparks are coming into the light.
