She Makes Me Nervous, is slightly more tolerable. An easy romp, showcasing that iconic Brighton guitar pop sound that became a mainstay on our playlists during the nineties. That’s the only real problem I found with this release, is that it sounds so nineties. The pace of the song is great though, with some Ska elements that made me want to kick into a fierce skank/ running-man contest with my flat-mate, unfortunately though, there were not enough of those elements in the song to warrant another listen. Vocalist Aaron Neville brings a much needed grit to the song. The parts of the record where Neville gets to really use his range and vocal strength are impressive and left me wanting more of that gutsy sound pumping out from the vocals.
For their debut single release, Fragile Creatures gives us a taste of what’s to come. Definitely a band to keep an eye on as they grow and develop their sound further.
