Release Date: Out Now
Manchester septet (yes, really) the Horse Puppets really know how to imbue a song with sad romanticism and a sense of Parisian cool. The band’s new single, ‘Caught You Out’, carries the charm of Jarvis Cocker and Neil Hannon duetting in a velvet lined room clouded in swirls of Gauloises smoke and populated by bored looking beauties. The slide of the guitar notes, the sparse percussion and the low rumble of the carefully chosen bass notes all make for a thoroughly heartbroken but utterly stunning song that may well go on to the maybe pile when compiling my funeral playlist.
