Cherry Ghost – Mathematics

The new Coldplay? Well the title certainly fits in with Chris Martin’s formula obsessed workings. But no, not here, this is far more understated than Coldplay’s stadium intentions and not a bad first effort from Cherry Ghost. A string laden lament which grows more poignant with repeated listening.

Not quite the “Crashing Beauty from a sweet apparition”, they describe themselves as, but an earnest, polite if rather repetitive run through of rich baritone vocals and withheld guitars that sadly pack all the punch of a B-side from The Thrills.

Quibbles aside, this is a promising debut, epic in the drawn-out manner of the latter day Verve, but without the overkill of say, the new Arcade Fire album. Not enough to demand our attention just yet, but with a little more fire in their hearts, Cherry Ghost could certainly be ones to watch out for in the not too distant future.
