Image from Discogs
Powered by Audioscrobbler™Insect Guide; from Leeds, they're one boy and one girl and one laptop, but this is no cold machine music, this is gorgeous space pop whose beautiful boy-girl harmonies and gossamer melodies sparkle as if grunge, Britpop and the last 15 years in general never happened. Half close your eyes and the dark-haired, black-clothed duo could even be half of My Bloody Valentine or even The Velvet Underground. Singer Su hits a floor drum almost in slow motion like Bobby Gillespie in the young Jesus & Mary Chain playing at being Mo Tucker and a line is drawn through three generations. Somewhere in the midst of all this a familiar line or two slips out; and like the shoegazers finally getting the last laugh over the American alt-rockers many years down the line, Dinosaur Jr's "Freakscene" is rendered in slow motion, fuzzed up and starry-eyed and strangely moving.
