Record review: French Wives – ‘Numbers’

‘Numbers’ begins with some eerie synth which leads into an explosion of powerful drum beats and an elegant melody.

The vocals are passionate yet upbeat, fitting perfectly with the classic style instrumentals, the chorus is punchy and catchy, you will find yourself humming it for hours.

The cheery and infectious tune would suggest simplistic lyrics but they are in fact littered with meaningful wordplay, the more you listen the more it jumps out at you.

Boisterous beats combined with folky Scottish vocals create a sound unique to French Wives.

‘Numbers’ is a catchy tune that would cheer anyone up on a rainy day and is definitely worth a listen.
