A four track cassette from a Scarborough based outfit billed as a rock band but actually delivering some tight pop tunes. The starter is straight out of the lona code of songwriting, breathy stuff with a nod towards Clannad, then breaking into an early Strawbs/Jethro Tull feel with "Down The Line". On first play "Searching For Love" was the winner for me, being closest to an indie band sound, but on subsequent airings the other two tracks "Where The Heart Is" and "Forever" definitely took over. The chorus on "Forever" is particularly catchy. I'd advise the guys to stick with the light pop kind of feel which appears to be a major strength. Nice songs, nice harmonies could help on "Where The Heart Is" too. An impressive debut and well worth booking if this is how they sound live, which I guess it is.
