The Needles Summer Girls Single

Tingling summer indie with a hanging vocal element is the second single coming for the sharp Aberdeen quartet, The Needles. Fuzzy and harmony laden guitars and rhythmically trotting percussion whose combined effect sometimes swerves provocatively close to Muse quarters, provides the pulse of the song that circulates the laid back and throaty cries of Dave Dixon. Short, catchy and simple, yet with element of depth means that this is an idle accompaniment to the short attention spans that accompany a summer's day.

A more reflective tone is proffered through the slightly psychedelic, non-album offering, 'How Come It Doesn't Rain' that will have the tender-hearted in all of a dither. Richey Wolfe sprinkles his roaming keyboard touch all over this ranging ride to illuminate the band's depth. Debut album, 'In Search Of The Needles' hits the public domain 04/09/2006, so for those who are finding Boy Kill Boy's attention seeking, limelight squatting a tad tedious now, this date will not come a moment too soon.

Rating; 8/10
