Yesterday we featured new songs from London bands downdime and L'Advventura. Today we introduce you to another London band called Fearless Vampire Killers and a Brighton band Pope Joan.

The band has a dynamic, more classic pop rock sound, noting influences such as The Kinks, David Bowie and Green Day. There is promise with this band and with time they should get better and better.

"Fearless Vampire Killers" - Fearless Vampire Killers, newly released single
Fearless Vampire Killers on MySpacePope Joan is an indie pop quartet from Brighton, England with a sound that has been described as "ambient walls of processed guitar noise, furious drum lines and quirky 8-bit synth keyboards." Nicely put. This is some really good stuff - sort of like Editors mixed with The Cure. Guys: Don't forget to send the LP when it's done. Very promising.

FVK has an interesting sound. I wonder where they're heading.
