Firestations
Cold Sweaty Palms Waltz Time Records

Article written by Ged M - Apr 19, 2015

Lifted from the lovely debut album Never Closer, ‘Cold Sweaty Palms’ is dreamy indiepop that snags you as it scoots along from hook to hook, some of them in unexpected places. It’s quick and catchy, and fans of Veronica Falls would find it well to their taste.

Alongside the main course are hefty remixes, including from blip-pop expert Bit Cloudy (Firestations’ own Martin Thompson), whose techno-krautrock version of ‘Cold Sweaty Palms’ is full of awesome electronic excess. Stats’ remix of ‘Forgetful Man’ is genius, a treatment on a par with pop theoreticians from the 80s like ABC, full of disco diversions from the main song and a stomping dancefloor beat that would grace any North London Club Tropicana. Finally, Billy Mahonie’s Gavin John Baker engineers a version of ‘Lonely Town’ that layers voices and instruments in a dense and droney acid-folk arrangement that blows you away the closer you listen to it.
