Sand - Clay (Kscope) 
Sand - Clay

Release Date: 28th October 2013

For the first time in a very long time I have found one of those really annoying songs that reminds me so strongly of something that I can't quite recall that it's become irritating. 'Clay', by North Atlantic Oscillation offshoot Sand, is a wonderfully messy mixture of Biffy Clyro, Belle & Sebastian, James Bond themes and Teenage Fanclub. However, the sound is also highly reminiscent of someone else.....Orange Juice? No, not quite. Divine Comedy? Catherine Wheel? Nah. Jim Noir? A little bit. It's ace, that much I will say. Bonkers and ace. So it doesn't really matter who it reminds me of does it? (Except it does a bit and now I won't be able to sleep).
