Back in November I posted a demo by The New Southern Electrikk, a memorable cover version of The Gun Club's Mother Of Earth. Quite a lot of you liked it. The band have put a new single out on the internet this week, Brown Eyes, a song of loss written by keys player Rikki Turner (who used to be the Paris Angel's frontman but this group is some distance from indie-dance). Brown Eyes has a 60s soul feel, some girl group dynamics, with its rolling bass, dripping guitar part, and a truly spine tingling vocal from singer Monica Ward. And atmosphere. Plenty of atmosphere.
