#152 The Lunchtime Sardine Club – Rumours

What’s in a name? Well, ask Oliver Newton. He’s named his band The Lunchtime Sardine Club, his album Icecapades and one of the tracks on it ‘I’m… Jesuschristmaam’. There’s an impressive scope to the album, from the dirty, grungy brand of alt-folk displayed on ‘I’m… Jesuschristmaam’ to the more melodic and kinetic ‘Rumours’, but the overall effect is something as bracing and restorative as a dip in a freezing cold pool. Icecapades is out on August 12.
