Turin Brakes : Emergency 72

Another heart-breaking single from a band poised to do great things. Although not a patch on their last single, the mighty ‘Mind Over Money’, this is still better than most of the singles released this week. Written off by some as another acoustic band with more than a passing interest in the Buckleys, this doesn’t do justice to singer Olly Knight’s insistent, snarling vocals, which become ever more frantic as layers of guitars build into a crescendo of despair. It’s one of those songs so fervent it’s hard to tell whether he’s in love or been dumped – just that it comes from the heart either way. Try it before you knock it, at least.
