Noiserv: Bullets on Parade (single)

~ Monday, 24 August 2009
Released as a limited edition 7" vinyl through Autumn Ferment Records, this is an impressive statement from the Portuguese songwriter David Santos and makes getting hold of his 2008 debut album One Hundred Miles From Thoughtlessness a mouthwatering prospect.

This is a cleverly constructed piece of music that is based around Santos plaintive, but spellbinding vocals, the acoustic guitar the backbone of the song with Glockenspiels building the texture. A stroke of genius is the use of various household objects like a typewriter and camera to provide the percussion.

This is heartwarming music that the likes of Damian Rice and David Gray could only imagine making.
Catch him when he hits the UK in November for a handful of shows.
