If I could fall into the sky
Do you think time would pass me by?
'Cause you know I'd listen to One Thousand Violins
If I could just see you ... tonight
OK, so 80’s indie-poppers One Thousand Violins probably had nothing to do with the success of Vanessa Carlton’s single back in 2002. That said, the Sheffield group did share Carlton’s way with melody. Their debut single ‘Halcyon Days’, a shoegazey jangle that sounds like The Smiths being covered by early My Bloody Valentine, was voted into John Peel’s Festive 50 when it dropped in 1985. Now that track and original B-side ‘Like 1000 Violins’ have been reissued on wax for the first time courtesy of Optic Nerve.
