Hang on mate!? 7$T?

The Swiss have given us the Swiss Army Knife, political neutrality and Roger Federer, but what have they delivered musically? Hmmm... one of only two "Swiss" winners of Eurovision is Celine Dion. And they gave her back to Canada! But is anyone going to argue with that decision?
Well, despair no longer Switzerland because, as you already know, four boys from Lucerne are about to change that forever. Apparently 7 Dollar Taxi (7$T - yeah, I'm not quite sure about that tag either) have been a big deal in their home land since 2006 when their debut album, Come and Figure it Out, dropped. The album is set to be released in the anglosphere in August and they look set to be bigger than they are in their home market.
Do the Robot is the lead-in single. It's quite a pleasant little Scandinavian pop tune, but maybe a bit uninspiring. However, the clip for it is heat with what my untrained tells me is plenty of rotoscoping, a la A Scanner Darkly.
I'm more enamoured with the B-side, Red Lips. This tune is fire and rocks and rolls very nicely. You should also head over to their MySpace and check out the tune Jurassic Heads, which is very tight.
Oh, and if you want to know what they sound like think Arctic Monkeys with a touch of The Hives grit.
