Sonic Art

The Sonic Art, Do You Ever Feel
debut single, Rough Justice

This is very pretty and has a nice combination of tunefulness and scrumptious production detail. There are three tracks on this single and all have really pretty touches ... so that sounds like it's not perhaps about twenty mega-watts of Marshalls? Quite right, this is in that area of space and dynamics and artful sounds that isn't like Radiohead but some parts could readily have been inspired by them -- oh well, maybe the tone of the vocals is at times quite close but the misery quotient is thankfully low.

The Sonic Art are two cousins, James and Christian Norris and the music is a merging of accoustic and electronica. It'll be interesting to see how they do.
