The Mantells on Saturday gave us the first taste of what we can expect from their upcoming debut ‘How To Say It’ EP with ‘Able Bodied’ and I can reveal (as you will already know) it’s been worth the wait!
It’s a proper catchy little number that is bound to be engrained in your mind from first listen. It features a proper bassline which rumbles alongside the perfectly energetic drumming and together they provide a great backdrop for Tom’s sweet vocals. Tom has a voice I could listen to all day (I listen nearly every day to his solo EP available for free here https://soundcloud.com/tombarrowmusic proper worth a listen) and he is on top form vocally again here.
All in all its a top quality start from The Mantells and the good news is that it doesn’t end here. Tomorrow night (Friday 25th July) from 9pm Pure Radio (http://pureradio.org.uk/) have an exclusive first play of the next track from ‘How To Say It’ ‘Key To The City’, I believe this will be put up on Soundcloud on Saturday morning so keep your eyes peeled for what promises to be another belter from the lads.
Don’t forget that the EP launch takes place on the 8th August at The Castle Hotel, Oldham St, Manchester and IT’S FREE! Get yourselves down there for a cracking night!
