If you’ve actually somehow managed to not hear this before now, wrap your lugs round two minutes of Scott Walker-meets-Jake Thackray sweetness: Turner and Kane (a crime-fighting duo if ever we heard one) weave their voices in perfect, rough-diamond harmony over swishes of flamenco guitar, galloping, coconut-shells-for-horses drums and distant rumbles of timpani. Short, sweet, and perfectly formed in its own – ahem – understated way.
