The View - 'The Clock'
Pushes all their inner Fleetwood Mac-isms to the fore
Avert your minds from his quite excellent nickname (hi Crazy Mo!), and you’ll see that The View’s drummer Steven Morrison is currently rocking the finest facial hair since Spinal Tap hero Derek Smalls. Mainly because it’s the exact same facial hair Derek Smalls had. We feel this befits his band’s new soft-rock direction rather well. ‘The Clock’ pushes all Kyle Falconer’s inner Fleetwood Mac-isms to the fore and, frankly, if we were in Haim right now, we’d be cosying up to his furry brow to make some right skeezy babies.
