The High Wire – The Midnight Bell (Grandpa Stan) 01/03/2010

March 9, 2010 by  

Being frequently compared to Mercury Rev or My Bloody Valentine is all well and good for new band ‘The High Wire’, but on this, only their second single (after debut single ‘Odds & Evens’), it’s the dreamy synths and chimes that are reminiscent of a Caribou going pop or Avalanches chilling out that stand out, as they hauntingly drift along under matching haunting vocals.

[rating:3]

‘The Midnight Bell’ will give you the feeling you are asleep, rather then sending you to sleep –and there’s nothing wrong with that.
