ASIWYFA Are Top 10 For the Booklets' 2010 List

And So I Watch You From Afar – And So I Watch You From Afar

And So I Watch You From Afar are an Irish band who like their big riffs and loud guitars, and this album demonstrates that perfectly. With the perfectly named opener Set Guitars To Kill the band start off well, with many riffs, loud distorted bits and a sudden “woo!” thrown in for good measure. The slightly long I Capture Castles is at times beautiful, and then suddenly it will turn into a wall of sound. On the strength of this album I can’t wait to see them live.
