7/10 Staff review, 07 April 2014

Here's a chimey bit of Smiths-inspired indie pop from Sheffield hopefuls High Hazels, an earnest concoction with soaring vocals and restrained twinkly reverb-laden guitar hooks and a hazy '60sish shuffle which heads into Shadows territory on sensitive ballad 'Winter Song' which plods on for slightly too long.

Over on the other side 'Summer Rain' picks up the pace, falling somewhere between Deerhunter haziness and a '90s pop clarity that really reminds me of James. Dramatic and catchy but economically arranged. Finally 'Loose Stitches' takes things down into sleepy Shadowsy mode again.

Now that I've noticed the James similarity it's hard not to ignore how much the singer sounds like Tim Booth, I don't know if it's the voice or the phrasing but they sound very similar.
