The Candle Thieves ‘Happiness Blues EP’ is out on Monday! September 13th

| On 09, Sep 2010

The perky Peterborough duo of Scott McEwan and Glockenshiels return with an EP of new material this Summer, quickly following the release of their beautifully quirky, acoustic-pop debut LP earlier this year. Having spent the majority of this year setting up their colourful toytown instrumentation at fans’ local pubs, living-rooms, kitchens and back-gardens, and high-profile US support slots forThe Scissor Sisters, David Gray, and curiously, My Chemical RomanceThe Candle Thievesdebunked to their bedroom studio to develop new song ideas written on the road. The resulting EP is another fine example of what transfixed so many upon their introduction at the turn of the year. Fronted by the casio-led pop squiggle of the deliciously oddball ‘Sunshine Song’, this new EP continues where that LP left off, with more endearing and evocative leftfield indie-pop. It’s a refreshing sound that veers from any definable scene and makes these awkward, but impeccably presented chaps so richly enchanting. As arguably Peterborough’s finest export since one fifth of JLS, Scott and Glock look set to make giant strides into the public’s consciousness, armed solely with their own striking irreverence.
