Sheepy Another DayBlang

I first reviewed Liverpudlian singer-songwriter Sheepy late last year, singling him out as one to keep your eye on, and on the outside it may seem like it's been a quiet time since then. Not so. Luke Jones keeps writing and writing, with countless demo albums completed as well as more gigs under his belt. Plus, Sheepy is now a trio, thanks to the addition of Olly and Villy Raze. So now that they've got the tunes, they've got the line-up and they've laid the foundations, there will hopefully be little to stop these superb guitar-pop songs from spreading far and wide.
Third single 'Another Day' is the best yet, effortlessly melodic and insatiably moreish, it's one of those songs that you'll wake up singing in your head first thing in the morning, and then you'll know it's going to be a good day; this is catchy and addictive in all the right ways. A mixture of lo-fi, powerpop and post-punk with a massive pop heart beating at the centre. At times it recalls Squeeze, at times it recalls Super Furry Animals, at all times it impresses and gets the serotonin flowing. Resistance is futile, Sheepy could turn into an all conquering indie beast.
