Label: Rough Trade
Format: CDS

intro

Sugary new single from one-time British chart-toppers and indie rockers , Cornershop


A chart failure par excellence, Cornershop must have blown it for reasons beyond their control. Cornershop never was part of the Brit-Indian movement, but for ethnical purposes counted as such. 'Topknot '. the single introducing their upcoming album , is a very fine ditty, oddly incorporating a Hindi chorus sung by newcomer Bubbley Kaur in a lightweight and sugary melody. The flip side, 'Notch'. is slightly rockier with a much sharper contrast of oriental vocals with steaming staccato strums. Two tracks which will make you ponder where Cornershop will go on their new album.



Track Listing:-
1 Topknot
2 Topknot (Instrumental)
3 Topknot (Vocal Version)
4 Natch
5 Natch (Instrumental)
6 Natch (Vocal Version)
