Cold Hearted Business


Working the same musical co-ordinates as The Magic Numbers, Polytechnic’s inoffensive, happy-sad jangle-pop could easily see them sent for a placement to Indie Siberia. Yet ‘Cold Hearted Business’ is their greatest moment yet, a furious two-fingers to their detractors, all disguised within a tune to get radio programmers whooping. “I was only saying something I thought was relevant!” coos singer Dylan – polite to a fault. Old-school thrills, and all the better for it.
