February Snow by Fell City Girl

Filed under: reviews — @ 9:47 am Comments (1)

It seems that just about every band from the Oxford area has Fell City Girl in their top 8 friends on MySpace. That must mean that either they are a great bunch of blokes or extremely talented. Although I live in Oxford, I am not in touch with any scene and have no idea what the band are like as people. That leaves me with just the music and I can promise you that Fell City Girl are one of the best bands you could hope to hear.

Sometimes you hear a voice that is just so damned evocative and Phil McMinn is a wonder. Every word is sung with with a fragile and desperate passion. Even when the band start to make some noise as on the track These Are The Heart Attacks it is still the plaintive voice that makes send shivers down my spine. The music and the voice combine perfectly to hit the emotional heart of the listener.

Bring on the winter – I have a soundtrack.
