Beautiful Pop from Red Telephone
You’ve got to sit down and tune in, particularly if you’re a fan of classic pop sounds. No one, well mostly no one, is doing it like Cardiff’s Red Telephone. I was struck immediately by Declan Andrews voice, working somewhere in that Bowie/Bolan range, though I think Andrews has a sharper ear for vocal melody. The rest of the band does their job, crafting a bright pop bounder that seems as timeless as it does, with just the slightest hint of modern psychedelia entering the picture. Probably one of my favorite tracks of the week, to be honest. Look for the band’s new single on October 19th via Libertino.
