Seconds have just released one half of a split on the always reliable Scottish label, Soft Power. I caught the band live this week at New River Studios in North London and they were very good. They kinda reminded me a little of Slum of Legs Рbut a more stripped back post-punk version with a dash of Sons and Daughters thrown in. Maybe it was the synth/keyboards that made me think of the Slum of Legs comparison. Either way, Seconds were engrossing live. And their half of the split release is equally good. Check this band out.

I’ll come back to Joya another time. For now I just want to listen to Seconds a lot.
