REVEREND & THE MAKERS – SINGLE REVIEW

Reverend & The Makers – Juliet Knows (Cooking Vinyl) 
Reverend & The Makers - Juliet Knows


Release Date: Out Now

I am increasingly beginning to think that Reverend & The Makers are one of the vastly underrated bands of our times and new single ‘Juliet Knows’ only serves to further that suspicion. A sparse acoustic number, this single sees vocal duties handed over to band member (and Milburn member) Joe Carnall and a soft sway that suggests a soft sub-equatorial afternoon fuelled by a few cool beers and a humidity that saps the energy from you. Carnall’s voice is warm and full of regret and love which makes this an engaging listen, even before the melodic whistling kicks in and someone opens another beer before handing it over to you with a wedge of lime in the neck. Bliss.

29th September – Looe Music Festival, Looe
