The Song of the Week this week is ‘One Day Like This’ from English band ‘Elbow’, from their album ‘The Seldom Seen Kid’. The best comparison that I can make is to say that several of their tracks sound like Coldplay but rougher and with more soul. The band is from Manchester, UK and is currently touring in mainland Europe.

The album came out this spring, but the single just caught my attention. It’s an excellent track, but weighing in at over 6 minutes long, it was doomed to get little airplay. Their other hit off the album, ‘Grounds for Divorce’ doesn’t strike my fancy, but fits into traditional radio playlists better and got more airplay.

You can hear a sample of their tracks at their MySpace page, or better yet watch the video here. Check out the band’s site, which has one of the coolest user interfaces I’ve seen in awhile on the intro page of the site.
