HUSBAND MATERIAL - BIGGER MAN
From Bristol/London label Art Is Hard Records Singles Club, angelic vocals, melting synths, snappy drum hits, and swooning guitar via a line-up that includes ex-Bos Angeles, Richard Board on vocals and George Rothman, drums. Catch them live tomorrow (August 29) at The AIH 5th Birthday, Bristol (with Male Bonding, Trust Fund, The Black Tambourines plus others).
