From the fantastically named town of Pity Me come Martha with their third album - they’re now on Big Scary Monsters after previous releases on Odd Box Records, Fortuna Pop, Salinas and their own label (Discount Horse). 11 tracks from one of the finest pop jewels in the North East. Driving, pushing, shiny pulsating drums and zooming guitar. Rich twanging pop guitars are backed by wind-through-the-hair power chords. There’s a slight folk tinge to give it an extra passionate lift with clear, hopeful vocals cutting through.
