Track Of The Day: The Hobbes Fanclub - 'How Could You Leave Me Like This'

The Bradford-based trio The Hobbes Fanclub conjure up a dreamy, reverb-dipped and melodic sound on their debut album 'Up At Lagrange', which harks back to the restrained production values and style of late 80s/early 90s shoegaze pop. Absolutely perfect for these late summer nights, the magnificent shoegaze epic 'How Could You Leave Me Like This' pulls at the heart strings while combining distortion and melody to brilliant effect. On the very focused 'Up At Lagrange', sunset-lit shoegaze vibes and melodic alt-rock sounds are wired together to create a type of reverb-laden guitar pop that evokes the true indie of decades past, while picking up plenty of influences from more recent years. A delightful slow burning beauty of an album. Read the full 7.8/10 review HERE.
