Sugarmen – Central Line

A nine track release recorded live in Sheffield (England) – the mod tinctured second song – Central Line – zings through the room in soaring temperament which finds the listener, even if they were not at the gig, stamping around their own venue with arms raised aloft and feet hitting the ground with enough force to immediately rebound skywards.

Live Freaks – Sugarmen is available on iTunes.*

The first of which is the gloomy beauty of Wishing Wells With Black Holes In Them. An approximately five minutes song of slowly pacing brooding shadows that holds the listener in absorbed attention.

Revealed early (available as a standalone single on bandcamp) was All I Remember which will be the fourth of the ten tracks.

Prior to advancing towards the play button ensure you have a handkerchief nearby to dry weeping eyes as the sonorous voice leads the listener on an exquisite journey of longing and loss with the wistful melodies of guitar, keys and bass create sonic layers of drifting interwoven melancholia with percussion setting a sombre framework.

Establishing themselves as live performance band Bright Young People are also able to find time to head to the studio to release new material and So Confess is a welcome addition to the catalogue.

The  combinations of grunge, brit-pop and rock’n’roll sear, like a branding iron, through the listener as the overdrive bass burrows through the speakers joined by a thumping percussion as the slowly unwinding guitar provides a loping reverb with the highly impressive vocal rounding out a track which attests to a trio with far to travel in the world of music.

A nine track album (available directly from the Cold Fashioned website) fused by quietly spoken compositions, which drift a melancholic sense of pondering introspective in to the room which transfixes the audiences’ attention with its fragile beauty.

The penultimate of the songs being Salt Water, which is my pick of the release by a musician, who in The Dark Hedges, demonstrates an innate ability to capture thoughts of self-doubt and transpose them to a captivating sounding board that has the listener wanting to hear more.
