At the Lake

At the Lake, These Days
debut single, Popfiction
released 2 feb 06

With influences like The Smiths and My Bloody Valentine you'd expect this to have a solidly English aesthetic, and it does. The influence is more Smiths than Valentines as this isn't a layers of feedback thing at all. In fact it is nicely played, tuneful pop with enough edges that it isn't bubblegum sticky. The singer, Matt Forder does have a smooth, somewhat Morrisey-like voice as well.

These are a nice couple of tracks, all in all.
