The lead track on the new Candy Twins EP, Good Friends is hand crafted, lovingly prepared very English indie pop. It has the sweet melodies couple with the realistic grittiness. Happy Families has spindly early eighties guitars and urchin vocals, the sound of the wilfully uneducated. It’s catchy but difficult to warm to completely. Sad-Glad Song is a gorgeous doleful pondering moment, while Wonder Woman Part One again evokes the days of early eighties DIY, cheap percussion and a struggling vocalist holding it back a tad.
