They have since released a limited single on Big Scary Monsters, and will be releasing a split 7" with William in February 2010 through Tough Love Records. Calories return with sophomore album Basic Nature, released on September 13th via Tough Love Records. A rich and varied record, Basic Nature sees Calories compliment strong melodic hooks with frenetic noise, recalling such underground titans as Hot Snakes, Cap ‘N’ Jazz and No Age. Their dedication to both craft and energy is a trait that has seen the band capture audiences around the UK, playing alongside The Thermals, Sky Larkin, Dananananaykroyd, Lovvers and Johnny Foreigner. Recorded "at various times in curious locations", Basic Nature points to a group that are continuing to build on the stirring indie-rock praised so highly on Adventuring. “Orchard Girls” harks back to Captain-era Idlewild, while the boisterous gang vocals and pop laden chorus of lead single “FFWD” instantly grabs at you.
What’s more, the gentler moments in ''The Offer” and the soaring climax in “Habitations” indicate the strides forward that the band have undertaken on this record. www.myspace.com/caloriesband Read more on Last.fm.
