Greyhounds In The Slips

By The Joy Formidable

Following on from their eight track CD 'A Balloon Called Moaning,' The Joy Formidable have delivered a seductively produced track 'Greyhounds in the Slips.'

Fully powered drums carve out a crescendo of epic proportions, leaving the guitars to compete for attention. Soft, layered vocals are arranged to give the chorus depth but over production occasionally leaves it foggy. The single features Paul Draper, former singer and guitarist of rock band Mansun, whose presence is more aesthetic than substantial, but a welcome addition nonetheless.

Resting somewhere between 'The Pixies' and 'Florence and the Machine' this band is certainly one to watch out for. The orgasmic baboon at the very end however, is quite frankly creepy.
