‘White Russian Galaxy’ (single)
Oh yes, I like The Crimea. This single is cool, quirky and melodic, like the slightly rougher side of a Travis-esque emery board. Davey MacManus’s charm is enough to entrap the listener into sticking it out, and rather delightfully, the song evolves into a vibrantly pretty, huskily gentle tune, soon to be an indie favourite, in my humble opinion. ‘White Russian Galaxy’ lovingly examines the problems of teenage alcoholism on girls, in such a sweetly harmonious way, that there’s no way it could be even slightly offensive. This is going on my MP3 right now.
