Minotaurs - Horsesshoes

South Shields sextet Minotaurs do a modernic Americana (actually, quite Canadian in tone, producer Arran Fisher having previously worked with Woodpigeon) thing better than most of their exports do at the moment. Laced with heartbreak and hopefulness, the accented male-female intertwining vocals are backed by the kind of charging, slow burn indie-folk that land somewhere between Fanfarlo and Okkervil River while burrowing completely their own emotional core. Horsesshoes (artist’s own spelling) is from debut album Eat Yr Hate, out 5th September.
