"Largs Hum/Cloudbusting single review"

Largs is a town in scotland, and I think I might have played golf there once (I use the term ‘play golf' VERY loosely - I used to have a few pints, then spend the next four hours having a splendid stroll around well-tended lawns while trying to get the ball in the holes in under 160 bashes...). hum? dunno.

If they were saying that it smells, then it would be 'hums'...or maybe it's just a hum that he does when he visits. Whatever, it sounds like Divine Comedy dabbling with mellow techno - in a GOOD way - and the second track is a heart-warming version of Kate Bush's Cloudbusting', with vocals courtesy of a woman who sounds not unlike Jefferson Airplane's Grace Slick.

Definitely something VERY interesting going on here...

"Live review"

Yet Swimmer One flirt in the face of adversity – draw a lascivious smile, raise an eyebrow – as their coy pop winks in the flickering starlight, seduces machines and beguiles all in sight. They sway like brave scarecrows, serve modest banter, leave us all hoping they’ll call us tomorrow.

We want more. More. More of their wily words, their tender synth fare, their surprisingly colossal pop, as witnessed on a blinding cover of Kate Bush’s ‘Cloudbusting’ – a startling, staggering highlight, as ever. But handsome dance boys, don’t hold back! Louder, Faster, Bigger, More! - Plan B

"Largs Hum/Cloudbusting single review"

Shades of Nectarine #9 in their blackly warm intro that woozes confidently into a kind of Fat Les meets synthed bagpiped beat and electro-glam euro-sleaze.

The KLF are jealous, Death In Vegas more so. how, I wonder, can they fail to be ruling the universe? - Unpeeled

"Come on, let's go! single review"

Intelligent, experimental pop with quite lovely melodies. - Scotland on Sunday
