586 are a tragi-comic, garish shebang of a gang. Deborah Coughlin and Steve Horry write songs about money, paranoia, monkeys, guilt and small town warfare to indie-pop tunes with a bible of disco dilemmas and punk politics. Compared to The B-52's, Tom Tom Club, The Long Blondes, Art Brut, The Moldy Peaches and Arcade Fire, a performance from all five members is, at the very least, the most interesting of any new band around. Glitter explosions, impromptu stand-up, dance-offs, gifts and genuine enjoyment from the band are addictive additives to some of the strongest, idiosyncratic songwriting for years.
