Brideshead - the mermaid

Dufflecoat Records's latest release is this lovely 7" single, classic indie pop thrills on "The mermaid". Its fast and catchy and full of fun pop noises. Its ticks all the twee boxes with its incessant energy and enthusiasm. "The loneliest boy in the world" could come straight off a Sarah single, a joyous slice of jingle jangle pop. I suppose you could say its nothing new, covering well-worn ground, but it does it very well indeed. York Minster isn't anything new either and that doesn't stop it being lovely and well worth your time, as is this. A great pop record to lighten the dark nights.

Royal Blood

Its furious stuff, brutal drumming, slabs of rock noise and songs that hit you like an iron fist covered in a chain mail glove. Classic British rock is in Royal Blood's DNA (a blood joke would have been a step too far) and their influences are pretty apparent as you listen to them but the sound this duo produce is amazing.

The album is full of great riffs so picking out favourites is difficult but "Come on over" and "Figure it out" can spark total rock outs in even the most jaded fan.
