What begins as what you assume to be just another guitary jangly niceness surprises you when the soft beat escapes and suddenly jumps onto this other level of guitary jangly niceness. A level filled to the brim of oozing rock’n’roll, like when you bite into a jam donut, but perhaps not quite as sweet.
Bitter Strings are a foursome of northern guys hailing from Leeds and Nottingham producing music under that northern soul umbrella, but with a 2015 feel to it.
After releasing their EP ‘Honey Don’t Lie’ around this time last year, Bitter Strings’ latest track ‘Losing & Winning’ is the first new material since. And hopefully the first of a string of songs that aren’t bitter (did you see what I did there?).
