Member Of The Wedding

The EP is called ‘Chapter & Verse’ and makes use of cheap guitars, fender amps, and groovy 60's organs

Glasgow’s Member Of The Wedding look to The Vaselines for the dark purring and subterranean anthems on their debut ep.

They’re attractively ragged and charmingly offbeat – think of The Moldy Peaches, Eux Autres or Jonathan Richman – with a haunting melancholy from the Scott Walker songbook and a compellingly droll country twang that recalls Lee Hazlewood.

This is an exceptionally strong ep - a few more quid in the recording budget might see them elaborate on their chamber pop to even greater effect; although more of their charming growls would be most welcome in any form. More please!

Thanks for the tip. One of the best new bands you're so good to mention.
