Hannah - Somewhere Or Nowhere
From Manchester come Hannah, as yet unsigned but on the strength of these two songs it hopefully won't be long before a record company comes along ands scoops them up into their arms. These tracks are good and noisy, but show a real talent and a flair for the sonics. They sound a lot like Fierce Panda signings The Hot Puppies, with a brash, huge-voiced front-woman and some excellent tunes for good measure.
First track Somewhere Or Nowhere begins with a clumsily plucked, early Cure guitar line before crashing into voice, full of extended guitar breaks and crescendos. Its fantastic stuff, heavy on the cymbals, well recorded with loads of dynamic energy. You'll Remember takes things down a notch, The vocals of Lush and the guitars of Mew welded together.
Live I should imagine they are even better. You can see their MySpace page for details on how to get this release and where to see them.
