Hefner, led by songwriter Darren Hayman, wrote punky Brit Pop from 1996 to 2002. Their work will resonate with fans of Blur and Pavement.
I like how their songs never feel cluttered. There is a lot of open space between the punctual power chords and swirling beep-beeps that gives their songs both the airy lightness and dark emptiness of a vacuum.
