BORN THIEF - SINGLE REVIEW

Born Thief - An Inch Of Doubt 
Born Thief - An Inch Of Doubt

Release Date: 9th September 2013

What do you get when you mix Bastille, Simply Red and the Pet Shop Boys? The surprisingly not as bad as that sounds Born Thief, that's what. The Yorkshire quintet release their new single, 'An Inch Of Doubt', on 9th September and I can see it fast becoming a guilty pleasure. I think there is perhaps a little too much guitar noodling to make it a bona fide indie smash with the chin stroking music media but there is something really addictive about this tune that has kept me coming back for more. The relaxed, end of summer beats and the choppy guitars give the song a really nice groove and Jake McGrath's dreamy vocals (dreamy as in dream-like, not "he's so dreamy, I wish we could go steady") make it nigh on impossible not to relax in to this tune like a hammock on a Balearic beach during a sunset in early September.


Live Dates:

24th August - Silsdenbury, Silsden
1st September - Bingley Music Live, Bingley
7th September - 360 Degrees Club, Leeds
19th October - Oxjam, Bradford University
