LONGVIEW - New single 'Can't Explain' released 15/09
Manchester-based Longview's debut album Mercury was released in the UK on July 21 through 14th Floor Records, the album was preceded by the Top thirty single 'Further' on July 7. The second single from Longview's critically acclaimed album will be 'Can't Explain', which is released on September 29th. This is what the critics said of Mercury:

If you are as yet unacquainted with Longview, prepare to go missing for a few days. Screen your calls; draw the curtains; cancel those urgent night
manoeuvres. You won't regret it. In times when scene-chasing garage bands clog up the column inches, Longview are a band from a far more noble tradition. There are obvious parallels: Doves, Radiohead, even Coldplay, but there's a serenity and optimism in their music which speaks more loudly of Verve (pre 'The'); a blissed-out Teenage Fanclub and the Beatles 'White Album' (a band favourite).
