Single Review – The View – Under the Rug

Dundee’s The View are returning with their fifth studio album on September 11th titled Ropewalk and with this is their new single from the album ‘Under the Rug’. This album has been co-produced by Albert Hammond Jr. and this fingerprint is evident on this track with crisp and isolated instrumentation, particular the lead guitar parts that tear through the song’s opening. From here the song takes on a Smiths-like state with the light ringing rhythm sections and a rumbling bass-line. This allows Kyle Falconer’s more earthy and captivating vocals to meander their way through the music with the crisp production allowing the lyrics to remain clear too. A pretty solid track to give fans a glimpse of their upcoming effort and their impending Autumn tour which commences in Aberdeen on September 16th before circling around the island and back to finish in Edinburgh on October 5th.
