Horsebeach – What Problem?

Horsebeach are a new Manchester band with echoes of *takes deep breath* The Smiths
There.. I said it. But its pretty clear they are also influenced by the surf-pop scene currently so in vogue round these parts. If they added a little more indie-disco spirit they could well be pushing into Craft Spells territory… now that I could get behind.

This is a band in development – their online presentation is amateurish, a challenge any modern band must get to grips with – and I’m not sure I could ever really LOVE a band called Horsebeach. I could, however, love a band that makes songs like What Problem? which is utterly charming, lyrically deft, with a melody to die for. Listen here:

She said “How could I fake my own death?”
I said “My love, how could you die if you’ve never lived”

She said I was wrong and she’s probably right, she said I was wrong.

I apologise for I can no longer pay my way round here.
I apologise for anything i might say from here on out.

Patience is a trait that appeals to me.
It’s a mind that’s so distracted and so quick to hide.
You could tell me why, but you won’t say. How long now?

I apologise for I can no longer pay my way round here.
I apologise for anything i might say from here on out.

I apologise, I apologise, I apologise FOR NOTHING
