Etches: The Charm Offensive


Liverpool collective return with second track following superlative debut offering Let’s Move In.

In case you hadn’t gathered, we’re rather taken with Etches over at Getintothis HQ.
When they dropped debut track Let’s Move In around four months ago, we worked ourselves into a mini lather over their pensive moody rockism before naming them in our 2014 Ones To Watch list.
Now they’re back to satiate our appetite further with The Charm Offensive, a similarly broody affair melding post-punk with soaring, slow-build vocals and buzzsaw guitars. ‘Cept this time added cowbell. Only a little one, mind, let’s not get too happy.
The Charm Offensive is out next month via Club. The. Mammoth while Etches play Threshold Festival in March.
