Sea Pinks are a three piece from Belfast fronted by a guy called Neil Brogan. Their new album Soft Days offers simple, guitar driven melodic thrills which anybody who's listened to records by Real Estate, The Go Betweens, The Smithereens, The Black Lips or The Undertones will recognise and enjoy.
There's not much more to them than this. They're not really bringing anything new to the table. Record Collector describes the record as 'just so much old hat' but the world will always have room for old hats. Their songs are well crafted and joyous explorations of the simple pleasures in life. Here are three highlights of the album.
