The first release on Indie-mp3 Records is by Leeds based band The Seven Inches. The title track is a gorgeous piece of bright pop, to match other current purveyors in that field, The Smittens and Pocketbooks. It just sounds so classic indie pop, albeit with a discordant guitar break, an a capella bridge and a great brass coda. It’s chirpy, catchy and great fun. The Rowing Song clocks in at less than a minute and sounds like a cross between a second wave mod tune and a keyboard led sixties pop song. Finally, To Boldly Go is a brash Brilliant Corners, surfing a tune along with insistent vocals. It wheels around itself in giddy excitement and streams effortlessly to the end.
