Single Review – The Cradles – Ideal Girl

Welsh Indie band The Cradles are releasing their new single and announcing themselves to the world with ‘Ideal Girl’ on March 25th. They are being hailed by those such as BBC Radio Wales as a new Indie sensation, but listening to this track you find that there’s more to The Cradles than that. Their sound evokes that of the recordings of many a 60s rock group and the performance of both lead and backing vocals that are smooth and harmonious in unison. There’s more of a garage edge to their sound too, akin to The Sonics with their tumbling percussion and bass line and falling guitars. A track that translates an era on modern terms. Not a bad feat for starters.
