Peter and Kerry - Split For The City

Single review by KevW

It's not exactly the most inspiring of band/duo names is it, Peter and Kerry? Still, at least we know it's factually correct, and since when has the name been the most important factor anyway? This London-based pair released their debut album 'La Trimouille' earlier on this year on Tape Club Records and are finishing 2012 off with this new single, taken from the album. 'Split For The City' probably sounds a lot like you'd expect music by a duo called Peter and Kerry to sound like. A bit indiepoppy, possibly slightly on the twee side, fairly personal lyrics involving relationships... they're all here.

It's twee enough to include the line "I sent you off to work with a packed lunch" but isn't sickly in any way. It deals with a relationship that's run its course ending when the heroine (we assume that's Kerry) pretends to go out for a cigarette and escapes to the city to get away. It's instantly likable and sticks to your brain like velcro, making us wish we'd heard about them a bit sooner and had the chance to check out the rest of the album, something we'll be doing pronto. We suggest you do the same.
