Trembling Blue Stars – Dark Eyes

Voted Single of the Week on Mark Radcliffe’s show on BBC Radio 1. The lead track is a delicate story of yearning and unrequited love, and one of the stand out tracks from the album Broken By Whispers. It was at this time they signed to Sub Pop for their album to gain a footing in North America.

There is a completely out-of-character moment in A Slender Wrist this is upbeat Beatleseque 60’s British invasion jangle. In Bob Wratten’s previous outfit The Field Mice there was much more experimentation with the likes of synth-pop showcased in their song Triangle, but with the ‘Stars he tended to stick to gossamer melodies about love dreamt about from afar.
