Indie folksters It Hugs Back have released ‘Work Day’ their first single taken from their debut album Record Room, due to be released at the start of next year.
The sleepy autumnal vocals are juxtaposed with jangly guitar on this end-of-summer release. The 7″ would be worth buying for the artwork alone, were it not also a great track. Which it is.
The b-side ‘Take a Part’ is an altogether darker affair, with its sinister scratchy backing periodically descending into chaotic multi-instrumental cacophony.
You’d hardly believe the two tracks were by the same band, which leaves FFS wanting to hear more from these possible schizophrenics.
