Candy Coloured Clowns "Glory"

This is the new single by former Hurrah! frontman Taffy Hughes' new project. "Glory" reminds me, in a weird kind of way, of Midnight Oil. Maybe it's his singing, or maybe it's his lyrical content. "Sad Satellite" is similar, but isn't quite as good as "Glory," and "The Kids Are Going To Really Love You" is a nice little closer. These three songs are slower than your typical British pop, and they're a bit more mature as well. While the songs took a little while to sink in, they're certainly indicitive of some real talent, even if they take a little time to warm you up. Will keep an eye on this lot, as I have a feeling greatness is coming soon...
