Thirteen Senses : Thru The Glass
Truro youngsters' ace debut. Cornish tasty!...
Affective Indie Disorder (massive guitars, snifflesome
vocals, wanton deployment of the cagoule) but closer
inspection reveals Thirteen Senses to be as far from
their panty-waist, colly-wobbling contemporaries as
something that is absolutely nothing like something
else can be. With its D-Day drums and haunting plink-plonk piano it is, in fact, Big Music with Bigger Still Vistas, an
astonishingly assured debut that does the military
two-step across the very notion of 'reigning things in'.
"You got us in to this/so get us out of this" warbles
singer Will, nebulously. A bold allusion to Blair's
involvement in Iraq, perchance? Or a desperate plea to
Truro Civic Theatre's costume department from a man
unable to remove his large bird outfit following a
disastrous matinee performance of 'Mother Goose'?
Either way, corking stuff.
