Alison Corbett: Rocking the sound of bands like The Killers and Panic at The Disco, Halifax’s The Sleepless Nights use minimalist techniques to create an amazingly catchy song about a robbery. The guitar/bass/drums serve as a solid foundation while the keyboard synth overlays fill out the sound and the vocals do the rest. Caution: this song will definitely be stuck in your head.

Mark Bennett: The bass intro gives a good jump-off point for the hooky guitar riffs and overly-accessible chorus. The drums take focus midway, and are the driving energy. They could have, however, pushed a little further and added more layers to make the song even better.
