I See Angels are the kind of band people need to start waking up to, having already self-released two albums of great promise in ‘I See Angels' (2011) and ‘Your Memories Are You’ (2013). Both albums contain a handful of gems… Embryo, After The Rain, Accelerated Love… these are songs you could easily become obsessive about. It feels like they’ve been learning their craft organically… content to slowly seep into people’s consciousness, rather than bang on any doors. Atoms (Breakdown) is a lost Manchester classic… it’s that special, revealing more emotion within it than most artists could ever hope to find. Taken from ‘Artificial Sunshine’ EP, Wide-Open is their finest composition so far, beautifully woven dream-pop with Radiohead-esque ambitions. Paul Baird’s broken-hearted vocals holding the track together before it drifts away into the distance like it never existed. (TRU LUV)
The six-track EP features Wide-Open, former Cocteau Twins member & Bella Union boss, Simon Raymonde's track of the week on Amazing Radio - 4/8/14.
