Belfast's Sea Pinks have been hunkered down kicking jangle pop for a while yet but this is the first we've caught of it. Glad though that they've finally come our way. "Lake Superior", the first cut off of Freak Waves is a jangled stunner that recalls The Hollies via The La's and it catches in the brain like a candy coated tumor. The rest of the record follows in suit although with darker shades, taking the jangled strums though brooding pop territory and wide skied rock shades. Its catchiest moments are in the first half but as the record opens up it reveals its quiet moments to be just as engaging. It’s a complimentary pickup for the fall into winter season with its cool burn fogging up the windows over the next few months. The album's out in small quantities and with a growing reputation its bound to go fast so pick up a vinyl you fiends.
