Much-loved indiegoth dreamboats Desperate Journalist returned to the thoroughly frayed musical fray with a the single called "Cedars." Propelled along by Rob Hardy’s startlingly lush guitar and empowered by a frankly cracking chorus from singer Jo Bevan "Cedars" saw the quartet further hone their sensitive-yet-crushing alt.rock sound, relishing the old school DIY dynamics but never afraid to magic up a shiny modern melody or three, and then always willing to cast a shadow over that sheen.
Band name comes from a Cure rarity "Desperate Journalist in Ongoing Meaningful Review Situation," itself a retitled "Grinding Halt" recorded during a John Peel session. https://desperatejournalist.co.uk
Following on from the success of their 2nd album Grow Up and 5 track EP You Get Used To It, Desperate Journalist have just unveiled "Cedars", a taster from their forthcoming album In Search Of The Miraculous, out in February. Preorder on their Bandcamp page: https://bit.ly/2FOXwRw
