We’ve filled these pages with Margot songs in the past, and I think the band are embarking on their finest hour. First, this is one of 3 forthcoming singles taking on the subject of mental health…a heavy subject no doubt. But, the way the guitar chords work in combination with the gentle vocals, it feels like the band is focusing on the light at the end of the tunnel…or the dream of that light. There are moments when it feels like they’re playing with jazzier vibes in the vein of Real Estate, whilst other times it seems smooth and polished like indiepop…all good things in my book. We’ll keep you posted as more the next 2 singles drop.
It’s probably easy in the guitar-pop stage of the music world we’re in to make comparisons to Real Estate, but I don’t think you’ll find a single band as on point in that style as South London’s Margot. You’ll immediately notice the way the guitars have this sharp intermingling in your ears; you’re going to feel like you’re cruising down the highway with a huge freaking grin on your face. What really sold me on the group was the softness of the vocals; they seem feathery in comparison to the guitar work, lending a dreamier quality to the sound than one would first offer up. A debut EP is on its way shortly!
