Lose the Swagger
Lose the Swagger (b/w) Arms Held aloft were issued as a single in advance of the sophomore Broken Remotes LP, 'Tonight's Last Stand.' Both songs represent a giant step forward from the band's first release, with tighter performances, better production, and stronger arrangements. In addition, the band has embraced strong keyboard melodies, which drive both new tracks. And while some things have changed since the 2004 release of Throw Me the Keys, frontman Jon Leahy has preserved the best parts of that earlier effort, namely the urgent lyrics and raw, live sound.
