I first set eyes on the Brisbane quartet Yves Klein Blue during a stint as a music scout for an online music initiative. It took four seconds of the gypsy-brewed Polka to pull on my hillbilly-lovin’ heartstrings, and three minutes later I was doing the two-step around the staff kitchen. Two weeks later, and Yves Klein Blue had been signed to Dew Process (home to Sarah Blasko, The Panics and The Grates.) No mean feat for a bunch of lanky Queenslanders, huh? Draw Attention To Themselves is a glorious, blasphemous, indulgent 80s infused pop/fuzz indie release that sees these leather jacket clad folk floating high above the indie vacuum of their musical contemporaries.
