Sweet vocal harmonies over a bed of summer groove. A little cheeky but all in good fun. Wait till the bridge lands on this one.
A pinch of Beach Boys, a splash a punk all wrapped up in a pop sleeve.
For Fans of: Peter Bjorn and John
An instrumental track really has to stand out for me to take notice and that is exactly what happened when I heard the latest from Mat Hours. Fans of Mylo (who put on a clinic with his highly acclaimed album, “Destroy Rock & Roll”) is a rare example of true artistry with sonic textures. “La Roue” now sits next to this high water mark. The track uses a tapestry of piano, vocal bits and a funky bassline. Very few do it this well and is sure to be in my best of 2017 short list.
