Self-confessed nostalgia buffs, this Glasgow band have plenty of experience to draw on for inspiration.
Formed from a variety of local acts including There Will Be Fireworks, they have enlisted Mogwai producer Andy Miller for this EP, which runs to around 20 minutes.
‘True North’ sees the band revisit old haunts – “same old blue jeans, same old pipe dreams” a poignant, trumpet-starred trip back in time.
While that opening track evokes the Blue Nile, ‘Still Cool’ revisits the same themes of nostalgia but a high-energy beat, as if the band did indeed “pack our jobs in (and) move to Berlin”.
‘Feeling Fine’ seems to delve back even further, wonderful 80s synths and “taking the long walk home”. Who says nostalgia’s not what it used to be?
‘Still Cool’ is out now. This article originally appeared in the Lancashire Evening Post.
