<i>Sounds like it was recorded on a rusty Walkman</i>More on Various Artists
Given that this Cardiff quintet's name is a weak pun on a harp-toting cult indie star, it's fair to say they probably haven't set their sights on reaching the top of the hit parade. But even bearing that in mind, 'Sugarcrush' sounds like it was recorded on a rusty Walkman, and the vocals are so buried they're barely a whisper. For twee-pop devotees only.
