All The Love In Your Hands
Haven couldn't do it? What is that I hear you ask, appear less sanctimonious? No, actually they couldn't follow up on a swooning, soaring and reflective, melodic indie debut to rise to the heights that many expected of them. A few years on and another Cornwall born quartet seeks to show them how it's done.
They have chosen a single to introduce their follow material that is close enough to the debut album sound, but does expand upon it slightly. The sauntering melody builds off a shrift percussion clatter and slows down enough, for the yearning and echoing vocals to be heard. These speak of a renewed belief in the power of love. The signs are there to indicate this outfit could go a step further, if this prelude to forthcoming album 'Contact' is a good watermark.
