Sharks Took The Rest - Rename The Planets

The Newcastle septet we first featured back in January come from a classically English folk background projected into a chamber pop setting. This first proper single pushes that combination further and ends up at the flighty mean point between Thea Gilmore and Beth Jeans Houghton. Beccy Owen's sighingly charismatic voice is front and centre but allows itself to be pushed by the violin patterns and brief outbreak of rock drumming. Despite its internal grandiosity it's all done in around about 2:20.
