When it comes to meaty rock, Razorlight stands up better than many of its dance-rock contemporaries. Owing as much to Oasis as to Blur, the London quartet deals in arena-rock anthems that are cool enough for the indie-rock crowd, thanks to Johnny Borrell's wordy, literate lyrics and unusual choruses. Its debut, Up All Night, has garnered widespread acclaim and a growing cult audience, which explains why the band is currently featured on mtvU's Campus Invasion tour.
