This is one absolutely beautiful 7"! The weather outside has suddenly turned to crap this morning - a grey, grizzly mist has descended on Leeds & it really seems to be ushering in the cold, dank season of staying in, wrapped up safe & warm in a duvet. Why, my soundtrack to gazing out of the window into that miserable void should be this eerily delectable single! It's a minimal thing of wonder - a sparsely plucked guitar topped with Dawn Smithson's gliding, wistful vocals and Aaron Martin's tender yet restrained use of strings. This stripped-back sound results in the instruments doing a slow, tentative dance around each other, constructing a skeletal framework which allows Dawn's sad, dreamy voice to swoop gloriously overhead. The flip is equally as beautiful featuring these portentous slow-stalking & tremulous strings & THAT wonderful voice - this being in a tragedy imbued sing-song style, the undercurrent of mournful cello et al being incredibly moving! A total treasure & a surprise single of the week out of nowhere - this really is a double headed head-turner of breathtaking proportions!
