Wow. It’s rare that a song induces in me a physical reaction, but such is the sublime beauty of London-based duo Dreary’s debut single ‘Fairground’ that on listening to it I felt my spine actually tingle. TINGLE I tell you. Perhaps I’m not dead inside after all? Of course, there’s an outside chance that what I’m actually experiencing is the onset of bacterial gastroenteritis, but I’m 99% sure that it’s due to Deary sounding like Cocteau Twins if both Elisabeth Fraser and Mazzy Star’s Hope Sandoval pulled vocal duty. It’s stunning. Initially released in January as a limited-edition run of 7-inches, which sold out in just two hours, this extended-play limited-edition green vinyl 10”, released via the excellent folks at Sonic Cathedral, features a new remix by Saint Etienne – which is so good that I instantly went and revisited the classic Fox base Alpha – as well as two very different re-workings by the band themselves. Can’t wait for the debut LP.
