Haven : 'Til The End

The band re-release their first single to remind us all of how clever they are...

Despite the kiss-of-death patronage from the once great Johnny Marr (a sensation the Pet Shop Boys are about to encounter after having the Smiths man work on their new album), Haven battle gamely on. And there is something endearing and true about their belief that they really are touched by greatness. To remind us all of that greatness, they have decided to re-release their first single. It sounds a bit old-school indie in places, a bit like Geneva and a bit like Marion (both of whom stank, of course) but it has a chorus that soars and makes us believe that while they are still unsure of how to find the door, Haven might actually hold the key.
