Berries – Siren
|Berries - Siren|
Release Date: Out Now
5 seconds. 5 seconds is all it took for me to get the hots for this track. Not even long enough to read the accompanying email. London trio Berries’ new single has one of those guitar hooks that just grabs you straight away and this first listen of ‘Siren’ has grabbed me in the same way that ‘Cannonball’ by the Breeders did back in the day. The circular guitar riff is hypnotic but the rumbling drums and rolling bass line keeps you from falling completely the spell of these three sirens and their respective calls. Three part vocal harmonies from the temptresses add an element of slickness to this otherwise raw and grungy piece of gorgeousness. Some serious licks in the guitar solo followed by the kind of breakdown that feels like Young Knives meets Reuben and you can consider my ship well and truly wrecked. Oh and there’s a bass solo as well as a fade out ending, I could be in love. Keep an eye out for Berries (aka Holly, Lucie and Lauren) as I suspect they’ll be on the lips of tipsters the world over before too long. Myself included.
