The Honeymoon Machine
Having fast tracked themselves a record deal with Easy Street almost as soon as they graced a stage for the first time, ‘Angie’ is The Honemoon Machine’s first release since signing on the dotted line.
With a retro guitar sound mixed with plenty of ambience in the form of strings and vocal layers, the a-side saunters along with a cocky British feel reminiscent of Ocean Colour Scene and The Stone Roses.
The two and a half minute timespan is taken at a steady pace that feels a million miles from the speed of todays chart tracks and overall, this is a rather convincing and satisfying track.
B-side, ‘I’ll be Your Dog’, is a slightly pacier affair with a nice guitar riff and some light-hearted lyrics. The theme is still very much retro and Britpop, but this song is bouncier and soon gets the shoulders moving.
In just six minutes, The Honeymoon Machine have firmly established their intentions as well as proving their record company right for laying the cash on the table. If the album contains more material like this, it will be well worth acquiring.
