Fans of Mumford and Sons currently lamenting the band’s recent transformation from ‘country bumpkin’ to just another indie band, need look no further than Keston Cobblers Club for a replacement.
With the same exultant melodies, heavy instrumentation and layering of sounds, and a distinctive twang to the vocal, ‘Won’t Look Back’ is from Keston Cobbles Club’s forthcoming album, Wildfire, scheduled for release on the 15th of June. The delicate balance of male and female vocal harmony in the track invites comparison to Of Monsters and Men, owing to sibling duo Matthew and Julia Lowe, and is a pleasing aural offering.
Overall there’s a professional cohesion that emanates from music produced by this five-piece, which makes us utterly unsurprised that they’re playing Glastonbury this year. And, as if that wasn’t enough the band are also hosting their own festival, Camp Wildfire, which is a 1950’s-style camp and swing ‘Adventure Questival’ in a secret Kent forest location. With plenty of exciting projects lined up, we simply had to make Keston Cobblers Club’s ‘Won’t Look Back’ our track of the week.
