Let's Buy Happiness - Start It

And so we officially say farewell to the Newcastle dreamers, whose widescreen indie ambition was wound up in physical form in June but just today posthumously put out their album Chants For Friends, recorded two years ago but without finding a home. Start It is a prime example of what made them such an exciting prospect back around Six Wolves and Fast Fast in 2010-11, building through Sarah Hall's dreamy vocals into an epic soaring soundscape laced with frailty and melancholy that hints at what they could have done while still pressing their point home as a hugely undervalued band in their day.
