Record labels are important things and ones which champion their local area are absolutely invaluable. Wakefield have Philophobia and the latest release which reaches our ears is the new EP from Dark Horse.
The three-track EP from Matt Knee features Rosie Doonan – fresh from her appearance at the Brits – on vocals. Inspired choice as her voice suits the slightly retro, slightly psych influenced pop – the artwork will also attest to this – on offer here. It’s feel-good stuff, not overly challenging, and by jingo do we all need a bit of that right now.
