Cardinal - Love Like Rain

Eric Matthews and Richard Davies have done some interesting stuff on their own - to name one each, the unimpeachable Fanfare for the former, touring with the Flaming Lips as backing band the latter - but they made their name in 1994 as Cardinal, bringing classic and classy orchestral manoevures to college pop-rock in a way few did back then and really few do now. They've reunited for an album, Hymns, out in January. This first taster is definitely from the Davies songbook with its distorted guitar, big beat and obliquely off-centre singing style.
