Sonicflyer Sun In My Pocket

This song won't set the world on fire but definately a nice catchy jangily indiepop track from this London UK based band. The Sun In My Pocket EP was released last week in the UK on CD through the Xtra Mile Recordings label. The band quotes Oasis, The Verve, Doves as influences. Don't really get that from their sound.
