Taken from “English Winter” E.P., out now on Matinée Recordings.
Brighton duo The Perfect English Weather return with the new 4-track ‘English Winter’ EP which marks an intriguing departure from last year’s much loved debut album ‘Isobar Blues’. The release sees the duo—Simon and Wendy Pickles—drawing further distinction from their other band The Popguns and taking cues from sophisticated electronica such as St. Etienne while maintaining the strong vocals and impeccable melodies from previous releases.
Being a seasonal release, the EP has to include a holiday song and ‘Christmas In Suburbia’ delivers that in spades. A very, very pretty tune with some affectionate, wry observations on the season, the song references Christmas lights, snow, Prosecco, and Barbie in a Tonka truck!
