The ABC Club - Thieving Magpie/Friend of Mine

by Rich Morris Rating:7 Release Date:2010-02-25

Tumultuous, surging guitar pop forms the backbone of this debut double A-side from Leeds' The ABC Club. 'Thieving Magpie' is a rattling, chiming number which sets its sights on the indie night dancefloor and confidently chalks up a victory. 'On the flip', as your grandpa used to say, is the more emotionally downbeat 'Friend of Mine' where beguiling singer Zandra Klievens struts her bedroom poet stuff in the form of snatched, panicked tremors of sensation. "A coffee stain/ I've ruined your dress" she laments. Social faux pas as existential crisis? Oh yes.
