Cry Monster Cry – Postcards

Screen shot 2015-02-05 at 12.05.36If you’ve ever liked even the slightest hint of Fleet Foxes, you’ll get right into this track from Cry Monster Cry as it takes all of the charm of the Foxes’ folk-based approach, removes the ridiculous sounding vowels and becomes an upbeat piece of indie folk that’s sure to bring a warming sensation to your ears.

Having heard the news earlier this week that Mumford & Sons will be headlining at Reading & Leeds this year, these lads might be wondering if this kind of music is set to make a revival. If it does, they deserve to be on the front-line of people’s listening habits as they’ve constructed a track that has all the rustic appeal of singer-songwriter acoustic music combined with samples of some of the very best mainstream folk that’s been on offer in the last decade. With harmonies that’ll hit you ever-so-sweetly and an all round soothing vibe that’ll send your worries fluttering away on the breeze, I could quite happily get out of bed every morning with a smile on my face if I set this as my alarm.

Bring on the horns…
