Review: 'Kidsmoke'
'The Bluest You'   

-  Label: 'Libertino Records'
-  Genre: 'Indie' -  Release Date: '24th April 2020'

Our Rating:
‘The Line Of Best Fit’ describe it as ‘hazy and euphoric’. And how can we argue with tastemakers like that?

The Wrexham quartet’s latest offering is a dreamy drift of chorus-heavy guitar and strolling bass that’s pure 90s indie. Think early Charlatans, Ride, John Peel playlists circa 1990-1993. Nostalgia isn’t in it: this is a floating wash of sunburst guitariness tat’s sweet and easy-flowing. It’s the sound of simpler times, the sound of a low-stress era of melodic wistfulness.

The evocation is vague: ‘The Bluest You’ doesn’t lift any specific song or the sound of another band, but instead captures the sound and essence of a specific time – a time when music sounded like this. It was a good time not just in hindsight, but then, too. And this is good.
