The Vaselines have some wonderful advice for you on their new single, their first for many years. We're not too fussed by their post-reformation music here but Frances McKee still has the most delectable fragile purr of a voice which lends this now legendary duo a very special edge. This is the first single from the forthcoming big record and their ideas as to what the song's meaning is vary from him to her. Basically you need to not fall in love and stick safely by the banks of the River Clyde. Yes, that's all the advice you need.

High Tide Low Tide by The Vaselines

7/10 Clinton 18 September 2014

Here come The Vaselines with a new single. Indie veterans who were wallowing in underground obscurity before Kurt Cobain and his Nirvana decided to cover a couple of tracks way back when. This is taken from their second album since reforming. ‘High Tide, Low Tide’ is a right catchy anthem. Its like an indie rock nursery rhyme and is tremendous fun that only the most miserable misanthropic whinger could fail to sing along with.  Overleaf ‘Cardinal Sin’ is a slice of jangling pop fun sang by the lady end of them who can barely keep a tune but it doesn’t matter. Again its insanely catchy, throwaway and fun and I for one aren’t going to stop them enjoying themselves.
