VPME – Track Of The Day – Sheen – “One Step.”

Sheen on The VPME Track of the day

Unlike London based blogs we sometimes feel a tad left out up here in the frozen north, consoled only by our warm beer, pies, our amusing flat cap collection and our prize winning whippets.  If we had a pound for every time a manager, record label or PR company asked us if we’d like to “pop down” to Water Rats or Koko that very evening to see the latest bright young things we’d have, oooh,  about  £76.00. The point we are clumsily trying to make is that although the net has shrunk the world, it’s still very difficult to keep up with the huge number of bands based in our illustrious capital. And sometimes a band comes along who are so bloody good we think “why on  earth haven’t we heard them before?”  Sheen are one such band, in fact their music is so up our street we really should be neighbours!

The sound they produce is profoundly beautiful, wonderfully atmospheric and like their collective name,(and unlike Charlie) shimmers with a glittering mournful elegance.

Formed little more than a year ago at the University of Westminster, Sheen have an ear for sparkling somber beauty and are influenced by the likes of The Smiths, The Cure, My Bloody Valentine,(the) Pixies and A Place to Bury Strangers. The band hail from all corners of the UK with the exception of Swedish chanteuse Aneta. In February the band plan to hit the studio to record new material and we’ll will certainly keeping our ears on high alert in anticipation of the results

Actually we are lovin’ Sheen so much, we say fuck convention –  here’s another track.
