Album: Sweet Sweet Lies, The Hare, the Hound & the Tortoise (Something Nothing)
Sunday 12 February 2012
Vengeance is an art form, and Sweet Sweet Lies – a bittersweet Brightonian sextet who specialise in folk-pop noir – are masters of it.
That much, on songs such as "Capital of Iceland", is obvious. But dual frontmen Dominic Arnall and Michael Hayes also have a mile-wide romantic streak. This is a band for fans of Leonard Cohen, Scott Walker and Nick Cave who wondered where their next great love was coming from. In The Hare, the Hound & the Tortoise, it's already here.
