This track from Perth, Australia-based Umpire wouldn’t normally be my particular cup of tea, but its subtle chorus has managed to coil itself around my brain, now I am unable to get it out of my head.  Umpire were born in 2006 and feature several members with a long-standing reputation in the Perth music scene. They’re a quartet that deal in finely crafted, breezy Indie-Rock, perhaps the product of living in a sun-drenched Western Australia? Certainly, you won’t find too many Glaswegian bands sounding like this, what with our 70 mph wind gusts, consistently grey clouds and incessant rain!. There’s a nonchalant atmosphere prevalent here, further highlighted by a smartly produced monochrome video, that opts to show the band playing rather than a superfluous promo vid. ‘Green Light District’ is lifted from their debut full-length ‘Now We’re Active’, which will be released by Hidden Shoal Recordings on July 14th, and is available to download for free at the link below.
