VPME Track Of The Day “Carver’s Kicks” by Straylings.

Straylings Von Pip Musical Express

Now this is fantastic. “Carver’s Kicks” by Straylings is an epic, dark, portentous sounding slice of widescreen drama.  Consisting of Bahraini/Austrian songwriter Dana Zeera and London born guitarist Oliver Drake Straylings have already received high praise for their debut Ep  released last June . On this track the sound recalls the cinematic Alt/Goth country which made the Howling Bells debut album such a critical hit and marks out the 5th March as a significant date in your musical diary.  Why ? Well that’s the date Straylings debut album   “Entertainment On Foreign Ground”   is released via Deadpan records

They  also play their first date of 2012 this Saturday at Camden Barfly.

    Oooh – I rather like this one. Yes, your Howling Bells reference is spot on. The tone, timbre and presentation of her voice reminded me of that immediately.

    Another great find for you, VP!

    How do you do it?
