LOST DAWN - SINGLE REVIEW

Lost Dawn - Manchild (Easy Action) 
Lost Dawn - Manchild

Release Date: 17th November 2014

So there would seem to be a little bit of a scene forming in the Cornish town of Falmouth. For those that don't know it's about as far down as you can get and, although beautiful, can be a little, well, bleak at times when the sun leaves town. So it's massively encouraging that the locals are using their downtime productively by creating not just one band but a scene all of their own. Duo Lost Dawn are central to that scene and their new single 'Manchild' is, well, it's fucking awesome. A tentatively scratchy guitar introduction soon gives way to rattling, 70s inspired groove that echoes down the cobbled streets with a thirst for Soho girls. The drums pad and patter in the background keeping the whole thing moving and the vocals snarl loquaciously with a cheeky twinkle and a pocket full substances that sure as shit ain't fish food. Oh, and did I mention that it's 7 minutes long? Yeah, a 7 minute long song as a single with a false ending half way through steeped in psychedelic references from a small Cornish town. Stick that in your pipe and smoke it.
