“Leed’s own Buen Chico release sparkling skiffle single ‘Gold From Lead’ with speedy summertime-sun harmonies and lustrous vigour. The feverish tune tightly mirrors guitarist/vocalist Morgan Tachell-Evans’s swaggering lyrics, including first line, “You’ve been talking oh so quickly”. It twinkles along without hesitation and without any sight of ever slowing down; all in all, encompassing a warm, comforting, and happy-go-lucky sway. With the help of bassist/vocalist Kirsty Dolan, boy-girl vocals tinkle around infectious co-ed Shins territory.” Rhiannon Rodriguez - Drowned in Sound
"It’s scraggly, dishevelled skiffle-pop of the first order, with bumptious tempo changes, unsteady harmonies and unflagging good cheer. They’re what the Pixies would sound like if Frank Black had been born suffused with a profound love for his fellow man... The nerds are taking over. " Seb Perry - www.glasswerk.co.uk
***THE YOUNG PLAYTHINGS***
"This is sun-scorched power pop that drips with the sass of teenage abandon and the bent harmonies of mid-period Pavement. Its optimistic, American-tinged indie rock..." Josh Temple, thedownloader.co.uk - Yr So Fit (For Me) single review June 2006
"The Young Playthings are fabulous, a frat-boy version of The Ramones after extra guitar lessons, all spindly energy, self-deprecation, woo-hoo choruses and sensible knitwear." Julian Owen, Venue Magazine, Bristol Fiddler's Club Live Review March 2006
"The Young Playthings play the very best sort of indie-pop; full of fun and humour yet also brimming with wisdom and pathos." Tom Sutton, Backlash Magazine Issue 5, She's a Rebel single review
Spooky heartstringed urbanism to nod your headspace to...
