Birmingham musical duo Allen & Douglas have been crafting songs together since their teens – strumming, singing and concocting songs in old railway stations and under canal bridges – and their music is always heavily weighted with honesty, charm and a love of making music.
The pair have a new album called Wheels & People penned for release this spring and ahead of which they have shared new single ‘We’re Beginning To Go Backwards’. This early taster continues their adventures in off-kilter/left-field indie, as ‘We’re Beginning To Go Backwards’ flits between muscular riffs and jangley chords, and sprigs of psych-tones with powerful vocals roaring us home. Each and every time Allen & Douglas pop up onto our musical radar they leave their mark and ‘We’re Beginning To Go Backwards’ is in keeping with this tradition; a wonderfully distinctive reminder of what Allen & Douglas are all about.
Listen to ‘We’re Beginning To Go Backwards’ below and keep an eye out for the forthcoming new record.
