Tancred – Queen of New York (Polyvinyl/Hand in Hive) 

Tancred - Queen of New York

Release Date: Out Now

New England trio Tancred didn’t do much for me at first listen, I found the jangly guitars of ‘Queen of New York’ a bit pedestrian and nothing made it jump out at me. That was, of course, until the chorus dropped and it all made sense in context. This took me right back to my first experiences with Belly and Veruca Salt with a sense of cool indifference blending with cotton-candy sweet vocals and the kind of indie-pop bounce that has been killed off by ruthless record execs after the 90s got killed off by Y2K. Delicious stuff and very moreish once you get a taste for it but probably very bad for your teeth.
