Manuka Honeys – Let It Go

Released through the echochamp label and mixed by Magic Gang guitarist Kristian Smith, slacker rock newcomer’s ‘Let It Go’ single fits the ethos and sensibility of the Brighton-based collective, with a well-crafted alternative pop song, minus the pretence.

A guitar riff solely initiates proceedings until the track later kicks in and glides along at a nonchalant pace, before a chorus comparable to Pavement brings some 90s US alt-rock lyricism to the table.

Sounding like an aggressive Real Estate mixed with The Shins’ penchant for melody, the track climaxes in a blaze of Pinkerton-esque vigour, giving indications about future releases.
