Berries have been cited in many top tens and had airplay on Amazing Radio and XFM, deservedly so. Their live shows have a reputation of being fierce.
The band sound like they have locked themselves in a garage and emerged bleary eyed with this riffy-guitar led new single. The vocals are Cranberries-esque (not everyone might hear this but it popped out for me) which makes for an interesting mix, it works well with the lo-fi style backing vocals. The riffs are sludgey and complimented by precise drums with clever changes of energy, but it’s the guitar solo that will get stuck in your head.
This is a great follow up to last years Lights, will be interesting to hear what comes next.
Catch them next:
22nd July – Tramlines Fringe Festival for Northern Crossroads Promotions at The Church House Inn, Sheffield.
