THE MARKS CARTEL - SINGLE REVIEW

The Marks Cartel - Take Me Home (End Of The Trail Records) 
The Marks Cartel - Take Me Home

Release Date: 24th July 2015

So here we have a bunch of lads from South Wales who state Kasabian, Oasis and Arctic Monkeys in their influences which immediately makes me slightly cautious as these are usually the go to point for meat-head 'indie' fans in white vans on their way V-Fest in Chelmsford. But wait, what's this? New single 'Take Me Home' has some ingenuity about it with clipped beats, Bond-esque strings, the swagger of latter day Arctics and just a hint of Kasabian mob mentality in the chorus that sits on the right side of moronic. There is that glimmer of hope that the Stereophonics and Feeder always had but never quite delivered on so maybe it's third time lucky for products of the Welsh music scene. Not the finished article or a show stopper but it certainly wouldn't be out of place on the XFM playlist.
