Y Bandana - Y Bandana (Album review for Buzz magazine)

Words originally for Cardiff's Buzz magazine and can be found in the March print edition.

Although they’re not there yet, north-Walian Y Bandana show potential on their self-titled debut. It’s a little safe and middle-of-the-road indie rock/pop that you’d be forgiven for thinking came out of Sheffield in 2005 were it not for the Welsh vocals, but the youngsters show an ability to play well and write catchy tunes. Although it will be loved by many, band members might just look back in five year’s time a little embarrassed - once tastes have developed and influences widened.
