This three track single has been sitting in my inbox for a few days, but when I finally got round to it, wow. The Union Choir are an eight piece outfit from South Shields, with 'Eleanor' dropping on the 15th as their debut single. Cited as sounding like The National, the post punk vocals act out a play, heartbreaking hopeful against an aching instrumental backdrop. Folk vibes run down the spine of all three tracks and the intelligently written lyrics run towards your heart and tug at the heartstrings. This is that one beautiful rainbow on a rainy day, lifting your spirits with an honest charm that's hard to forget. Keep a close eye on The Union Choir, because this single promises one fulfilling musical future!
