New Zealand born duo Two Cartoons are on the verge of releasing their first full album later this year. Using the timeless carrot on a stick method, ‘Dreams’ has been brought out to tempt us. Having three well received EPs already in the bag and moving to London to pursue their career I reckon it is pretty safe to assume these guys know what they want and how they intend to get it.
My first impression of ‘Dreams’ is nostalgic, as in style it is not unlike some of the indie bands from the late 90s to early 00s with Stereophonics in particular springing to mind. A haunting, echoey melody carries throughout and though in some way chilling, it also provides a quite relaxing sensation. All this accompanied by an amusing yet sinister video makes it easy to like this song and gives an insight to the mischievous side of Bradley Craig and Isaac McFarlane whom I can only imagine are lively characters. I for one will be looking out for the album when it appears and it would be good to see the guys touring a little further north than London too.
