TUNE Wholy Martin - Don't Go
September 23 release (Apollon Records)
Singles: Eyes Closed (trk 2) Don't Go (trk 6)
Debut UK album by this Norwegian six-piece. Led by Martin Framnes, his soul-churning, hypnotic and unpolished baritone croon. is contrasted by the angelic, clear-cut harmonies of the group’s five supporting members giving Beautiful Night a unique magical quality.
Dark rock n’ roll is seldom more melodically appealing than this.
File alongside: Tindersticks, Nick Cave, Tom Waits, The Walkabouts
