Listening to Cardiff's Houdini Dax it’s impossible not to think of Alex Turner and his band in their early stages. Jack Butler’s edgy vocals, sharp wordplay and the stopstart, spiky New Wave tendency of the playing certainly share similarities with early Arctic Monkeys, but it’s not what defines them. Yes, they have major talent - they can sing splendidly, they throw in some deft bridges and could very well sound like one of the great old acts. Yet they don’t! And when quizzed about their favourite bands, ’60s touchstones (The Beatles, The Kinks, The Sonics, The Stooges meet latter day acts Blur and Supergrass and new bands The Black Keys, The Raconteurs and White Denim). Yet You Belong To Dax Darling sounds nothing like any of them. It’s the sound of teenagers discovering what they can do. Live and exciting is the order for the day for the teenage world view of Houdini Dax. Their second album may well feature strings, ballads and mellotrons but for now let the revolution begin as these youngsters play it their own raw impassioned way with what they have learnt from Hendrix, Syd, Gaz and co. They should be famous!
