Cherry Ghost - We Sleep on Stones

by Dan Clay Rating:8.5 Release Date:2010-11-08

Setting the tone for Cherry Ghost's second album, Beneath This Burning Shoreline, opening track

showcases a dark but melodically uplifting slice of life in the vein of Merseysiders The Coral. Awash with lush strings and piano backing, Simon Aldred's murder musing and all it entails comes to the fore on yet another cracking track from the Bolton music masters. "We sleep on Stones/There's a killer in our homes that drives the night in," he sings over what builds periodically towards epic. Sharing Doves producer Dan Austin shows in the arrangement; a brooding northern intensity the Manchester boys themselves would be proud of. With music this good it certainly pays to be grim up north.
