“Alexa, play Aretha Franklin…”
Now you’ve got that one, standout line in the latest single from Sandra’s Wedding, does Alexa play the legendary American singer or this new track from the Yorkshire-based alt rockers? That’s my question.
In any case, if you’re a fan of The Smiths, The Housemartins and so on, you’ll be very much into this. You get a slick bass guitar rhythm that leads in and continues to knit it all together, then the vocal harmonies, rhythmic, electric chords and solo-esque elements sneak in. It’s a steadily-paced jam that adheres to the band’s usual jangly, somewhat melancholic blueprint.
With various BBC Introducing and other radio plays under their belt, Sandra’s Wedding have picked up a fair few followers — and rightly so. But this catchy new tune isn’t the only thing we can expect from the band this year — they have plenty to deliver our ears!
