Lenzie Moss Let's Take The Day Off - Available 31 March on Newtown Records

I write this review following the much needed arrival of spring outside, but in truth it was already summer in here thanks to the fabulous new single from Lenzie Moss (AKA Finlay Macdonald). As a former member of both Teenage Fanclub and BMX Bandits his 'earworm' credentials should be beyond question and so they prove on this track taken from his forthcoming second album, expected in September. If the first album 'Introducing Lenzie Moss' was highly acclaimed, it was perhaps a somewhat downbeat affair written during a time of upheaval in Finlay's life, but it sounds as though the fog has lifted on this preview from the follow up. I should perhaps come clean, as a bit of a geek ANY song with a Dominick Hyde reference is going to get an easy ride from me...but luckily this glorious slice of Summer pop - part 60s sunshine part
There She Goes by The La's - is also a phenomenal tune. Anyone who loves the best work of Teenage Fanclub will find this instantly recognisable, coming on as it does like an outtake from the "Songs From Northern Britain" era, so Nick Hornby should be in for a copy at the very least! It's unfortunate that the rest of the album isn't arriving until September, we'll have to make do with the actual summer in the meantime, chances are the skies won't be as blue as they are while listening to this 3 minute slice of pop perfection.
