Yeah I know we’ve posted a couple of Cave Flowers‘ songs from their new self-titled album already, but damn it’s a cracker of a record and this track, the most recent single, is maybe our favourite. ‘Upper Hand’ has that windswept, slacker country vibe, perfectly enhanced by singer Andy McAllister’s gravelly voice and the way the song builds and adds sonic layers to it. Wonderful ragged and glorious music. That chorus comes around and sticks in your brain like warm honey before the spiralling (Neil Young/J Mascis) guitar heads skyward. It’s one of those songs that could keep circling the sun ad infinitum.
