Drakelow – Swallowing Diamonds

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!
