Swallowing Diamonds. Not normally something I’d recommend. Damn expensive way to fill yourself up. Peanuts, that’s what I’d go for. Or some of that odd Bombay Mix stuff that looks a little like the bottom of a budgies cage. Anyway, emerging from the ashes of Hearing Aid favourites The Young Runaways, Drakelow have just released their rather sparkling debut track, Swallowing Diamonds (see, there was a point to the intro...sort of...forgive me, it’s hot and my moustache is terrible limp). It’s got a slightly harder undercurrent (edgier guitars that veer close to The Twilight Sad territory in places) than a lot of the Runaways stuff whilst still retaining those lush orchestral flourishes that really made their sound. Enjoy!
