South Ambulance – Davy Crocket

I’ve loved this Swedish band (and its sometimes offshoot Gamba) since their debut left the environs of Labrador’s magnificent halls back in 2005. Their website might be headache inducing but their back catalogue is a faultless seam of gilded gems. There are shoegaze influences aplenty but its overriding nature puts lolloping melodies to the fore. ‘Die 5times times5‘ should already be on your most prized mixtape (and you can nab it for free from the download section of the already mentioned red monster) and now EP#4 should be vying for your attention. The EP has just been released and contains this nugget of loveliness called ‘Davy Crocket’. In many ways it follows an unconventional path, blending 80’s stylings with lavish harmonies but the overriding feeling is one of blissfulness. If I were to worship this band any more my heart would surely explode. Would make for an interesting NYE fireworks display. KD
