I’ve written about the UK’s Various Cruelties before and am very happy to say they’ve got some new tunes out that you should immediately listen to. Particularly if you’re a fan of the classic Brit-pop stuff with a dash (or more) of soul. Their new 2-song single sparkles with melody and proper pop efficiency. I know everyone’s getting all up in the shit for The Vaccines (for good reason, they’re a refreshing blast of retro), however Various Cruelties take a different view of the Brit-pop experience and it’s a pretty solid one. Can’t wait till these cats hit the US.
“She Is The One”
Go here to listen to the rest of their soulful nuggets.
