It's easy to pigeonhole bands, particularly early on in their career, and it doesn't get much earlier than the previously praised Slow Motion Shoes who arrived with the melancholic synth-pop of debut track Brendan Fraser.
Those that may have been foolish enough to think that they were a one trick synth-pony can now eat their words as their latest (and only their second fully recorded song) The Quiet American is a punchier, more guitar derived effort with an absolute killer breakdown, showing that there's a hell of a lot still to come. I can't wait.

Also, keep an ear out for a mixtape from new Manchester based label Everybody's Stalking, which will feature an as yet unheard SMS track and is set for release some time in mid-July.
