Scottish band Dead Sea Souls have a gift for melodic pop. Their new single is an AA side and rightly so. Brave and The Comet are like the two sides of coin - different, but inseparable . Brave is the pop, while The Comet has a Caribbean feel, but both songs really heavily on the vocals and the twin guitars.
There is no such thing as Scot-pop (let's not call them Britpop, shall we, thanks), but for lack of a better word, it'll have to do. With their steady flow of singles, EPs and full-lengths the quartet is building an impressive catalog of well-crafted pop sings with unmistakable Caledonian flavor.
