Strawberry Whiplash - Stuck in the Never Ending Now
Label: Matinee Recordings
Format: CD

intro

First-rate second album from Glaswegian indie pop duo Strawberry Whiplash , whose music takes its influence from the best side of the 1960s


Multi-instrumentalist Laz McLuskey and vocalist Sandra have released a previous album, 2012’s ‘Hits in the Car’, and various EPs under the moniker of Strawberry Whiplash, all of which shine brightly, I'm sure they know what they are doing as they always rub the salt into a wound by releasing perfect summer pop in the coldest of days,. Heavenly Rickenbacker guitar dominate over Sandra's best Tracey Tracey/Primitives-style vocals, reminding us of hot days, perfect evening, sunny beaches, young love, and cool music, They deliver songs worthy of Lee Hazlewood or the more romantic edge of David Gedge, while remaining absolutely charming. This second album only lasts thirty-seven minutes, but is long enough to put a big smile on indie pop fans’ faces.
