Mod-A-Day: Early Hours

Hailing from down under, Early Hours (who graced Modcast #83 with this track), were an unabashed mod influenced power pop band. They had two excellent long players, and created a certain legendary garage persona for themselves in the offing. Where their first album was raw and sharp, the sophmore release, Evolution, was more refined, but that only served to make the bands inherent power pop goodness shine through all that much stronger. The track here, "I Wonder If You'll Ever Be Mine" is one of the poppier from that second album, and it highlights the bands sixties sensibilities, their Beatlesque pop sound, and overall a very mod vibe.
