Although the name might summon up awkward questions there is denying the Hermit Crabs way with a swish tune. Led by Melanie Whittle (ex of California Snow Story) this Glaswegian band have found a nice little sponsor by way of the irrepressible MatinÃ©e Recordings. Hermit Crabs peddle that distinctive Glaswegian twee pop sound, nothing sounds overcooked and the ingredients are organic in nature. ‘Saw You Dancing’, the bands debut, came out late last year and includes the chipper ‘Friend’s Folk Festival’. Bouncy and flush with adolescent themes it would likely fog up every thick-rimmed spectacle from here to Northern Scotland. KD

I was going to send some tracks off of this one to you, but then thought to see if you’d already reviewed it. Lo and behold you have.
