When you present us with a band that are described as having a sound which cannot be exactly pinpointed, it certainly builds intrigue, and if such a claim is validated, it can leave us glad to discover said band.
This was the case for Wakefield locals The Sourheads, who are fresh off releasing their debut full-length album – Care Plan For The Soul.
Their general sound is immediately established in the memorable, well-constructed opener Demons, being one of good old-fashioned rock and roll with an updated modern touch. The guys have plenty of roaring solos on deck in the likes of Morally High and Don’t Get Caught.
The smooth and easygoing Power Of Addiction is the focal point in terms of writing, while the rugged vocals are an ideal fit for the stark Rag And Bone Man. Elsewhere, My Rock And Roll gives us a taste of some glorious bass work, and Mad Dog serves as quite the fervent climax.
A top-notch record from a cracking act who are sure to catch the eyes and ears of more soon-to-be fans over time. They already have the attention of Labour Party deputy leader Tom Watson, so they are obviously doing something right.
