Kaiser Chiefs – Modern Way – Single Review

by Lucie

Being someone who would normally despise such a trendy band, I never had the highest of expectations for the Kaiser Chiefs; and ‘Oh My God’ confirmed for me that they were crap. But it took just one listen of ‘Every Day I Love You Less And Less’ to prove to me their talent not only as musicians, but perhaps even more so as lyricists.
‘Modern Way’ doesn’t have quite the same energy as ‘EDILYLAL’ or ‘I Predict A Riot’, but the chorus is heavy and harder on the rock edge than the indie. Ricky Wilson and co.’s unique take on British life is a huge part of their appeal, and this single is a fantastic choice to wave farewell to the scene on. It’s the final record to be lifted from the million-selling album ‘Employment’, so as long as the lads don’t go all egotistical on us, I think we can expect more of the same kind of genius.
