A tiny treat from pop janglers Horsebeach and their maybe friends The Pheromoans, both well-liked for their kindly indie pop musics. The dreaming nostalgia musings of Horsebeach come via "Alone" while the Pheromoans do two tracks at a comparatively frenzied pace. All in all, a sweet and swell pairing.
7/10 Clinton Staff review, 28 February 2017
I'd like to spend a day alone with Horsebeach's flange pedal. I think we'd have a pretty good time together. The band have a mercurial mix of rainy day Manchester misery and jangling indie bliss. 'Alone' is a typical Horsebeach composition, wandering around like Morrissey lost on Bury New Road. The band often sound so lackadaisical that you assume none of them are actually upright when playing their instruments. They've added a keyboard since their last album which I'm still coming to terms with.
The Pheromoans play lo-fi pop headed up with one of those non singers that sounds sort of like a cross between Bernard Sumner and Mark E Smith, the speak singing kind of sounds wrong but right at the same time. Like the music people made in 1981 when no-one cared. The music is a repetitive riff off New Order synths and one finger plucked guitar. They have a second track too which is like four people who have never met thrown into a room and asked to make a song. they are either rubbish or brilliant. I can't decide.
