Apart from Rugby League, Warrington has very little to shout about other than being the composite midpoint between Liverpool and Manchester. Which is just as well, as local five piece My Architects sound like they've been reared on a mixed diet of Lee Mavers' scrapbooks for breakfast and Stone Roses carveries for dinner.
'Under The Pines' is quite a beautiful, dainty number; pastoral guitar sounds, eerily reminiscent of such blasts from the past as 'Made of Stone' yet in a strange way could quite easily sit side by side with any of those pre-Loveless Creation bands such as Felt or The House Of Love.
With the likes of this and Brighton's Upper Room currently doing the business, a new breed of sonic melancholia appears to be budding and healthy. In a depressing way, of course.
