Starting with a gentle and ambient plucking, Strip Down from Northampton’s Jubilee Courts soon swarms around the listener with steel vocals and grinding melodies. Sparse and subdued but still making its presence felt, the influences of Joy Division and The Jesus and Mary Chain are evident. I could have done with a little more vibrancy in the lyrics, but I can imagine that with the lights down in a smoke fug filled room (not that this ever happens any more) the effect would be intoxicating. (I write this on a sunny Sunday morning, probably not its ideal home). Sway and sashay, gaze at your shoes, with a mood on.
