Review: 'Horse Puppets, The'
'Caught You Out'   

-  Genre: 'Indie' -  Release Date: '5th January 2020'

Our Rating:
How much fan crossover can there be between Arctic Monkeys, Lou Reed, Fleetwood Mac, Khurangbin, Buffalo Springfield, Alt-J, I wonder. And yet the press release for this offering from Manchester seven-piece, Horse Puppets, pitches them as being for fans of the aforementioned, and states that ‘The band have a hybrid indie sound like the more ambient side of The Black Keys or The Arctic Monkeys, mixed with country pedal steel guitar, violin, double bass, electronic synths and large vocal harmonies’, and Tom Robinson says he “love[s] that whole swampy Dr John/Alabama 3 groove thing” so suffice to say I’m prepared for some eclecticism.

I’m not sure I was entirely prepared for this, though. ‘Caught You Out’ is a spare and understated and considered indie tune with hints of Pulp and a dash of country. Low-key, reflective and delivered with a beguiling lightness of touch, its appeal is hard to ignore.
