Monaghan band Sanzskrit are back with a new single. It’s the first we’ve heard of them since debut, After the Wedding, which was a good solid start for the band.
‘Midweek Blues’ threw me off to start, it’s a lot more poppy and mainstream than I was expecting. The accordion sound coupled with the bass sound, give it a definite Oirish sound which I’m not a huge fan of. But it’s a damn catchy track, you hit the chorus before you’ve even realised and you’ll be humming it all day.
If the guys box clever here, with a little more sparseness in the production they could find themselves in Noah & The Whale/ Mumford & Sons territory. It will be interesting to see what direction the new album, ‘Carving Our Names in Trees’, takes.
