from all music
An electronic-based rock band from Reading and London, Does It Offend You, Yeah? made a mark with their raucous live shows and high-energy music that drew comparisons to !!!, LCD Soundsystem, and Digitalism. The band signed to Virgin and released its first album, You Have No Idea What You're Getting Yourself Into, in 2008. (The album included a free digital download for the Live @ the Fez EP.) Members Rob Bloomfield (drums), Dan Coop (synth), Morgan Quaintance (vocals, synth, guitar), and James Rushent (bass) took their show on the road in early 2008, supporting the Cribs on the NME Awards Tour. Quaintance left one year later, replaced by Matty Derham (Fields) and Chloe Duveaux (Elle Milano). The band's second album, Don't Say We Didn't Warn You, appeared in early 2011, heralded by the single "The Monkeys Are Coming."
The sometimes difficult second album, produced after two additional years of touring and the expansion of the group to a five-piece, finds Does It Offend You, Yeah? sounding nearly identical to their debut. In place, and still poised halfway between the rave and the rock show, are pounding beats, shrieking frequencies, and occasionally, bursts of experimental rock that show lead vocalist James Rushent and company treating modern dance as the playground for modern songwriting, an approach that meets rock via electronic dance in the same way that Radiohead meets electronic dance via rock.
