The Martial Arts

Bethany (Last Night From Glasgow)

By • Apr 21st, 2021 • Category: Single review

Paul Kelly is The Martial Arts and this is his first new material in a wee while, well since last Christmas anyway, released earlier in April.

Kelly is a multi-instrumentalist who has been involved with a few bands (including BMX Bandits) over the years. It is the first track from his forthcoming EP ‘Getting Stranger By The Month’. You do get the feeling that Kelly could do any genre of music if he put his mind to it, the music just seems to pour out of him!

The track is an enjoyable melange of breezy 60s-influenced pop, referencing Motown and The Beatles along with more recent C86 and other indiepop strains. Upbeat, melodic and with some hooky lines, it provides a nice bit of optimism in these long-Covid times.
