Race Horses

28 Jan

Race Horses are Welsh quartet who will instantly remind you of other Welsh quirky acts such as Super Furry Animals and Gorkys Zygotic Mynci. In fact, the latter makes more sense seeing as the band’s producer is none other than Euros Child from GZM.

There is a danger when describing a band as “fun” and “wacky” that the band ends up being twee and (more often than not) irritating to anyone over the age of 18. Fortunately, Race Horses managed to avoid this.

OK, they do have a song called ‘Cake’ which did put me off at first but the tunes are a great blend of cheeky Coxon anthems mixed with hints of 60s psychedelic pop and the genius songwriting that you might associate with the likes of The Coral. Check them out.
