Liverpool outfit Seatbelts introduced their super brand of guitar pop with a slew of super singles – ‘Hey, Hey Tiger!’, ‘Content Crush’, ‘Capitalist Confession’, ‘Black Strings’ & ‘Superstardom’– and charming us beautifully with each and every opportunity.
Comprised from James Madden and Ryan Murphy of Hooton Tennis Club, and Abigail Woods and Alex Quinn, Seatbelts are back with new single ‘Sinful City’ – and the foursome have nailed it again. Opening with a mellow yet mournful haze a seductive rhythmic groove seeps through, picks up pace as a driving beat ushers us forward with help from an unrelenting bass loop. Guitars twang and mournful yet increasingly driven vocals flicker amid the shimmering haze as our protagonist, like the song, longs to escape the den of inequity as the latter finally finds its sweet dream-pop home only for it to melt away just a quick. It is yet another fabulous tune from Seatbelts and their quality catalog continues to grow.
