Popular online music blog Louder Than War has reviewed The Label’s debut singles as part of a feature on Edge Hill’s very own record label.
“The Inkhearts and Hooton Tennis Club are the debut releases on The Label – a new university run record label set up at Edge Hill University that comes complete with its own manifesto- and we do like a manifesto!
The first two releases are perfect slices of youth full guitar optimism. Both bands play a sprightly tight guitar indie pop that is already far outstripping their new band status- produced by Carl Hunter from the Farm who has a hand in The Label as well this is yet more proof of the avalanche of great bands out there and
Hooten Tennis Club have that classic Teenage Fan Club hazy melodic ooze and those exquisite melodies on a song of lazy days and good times- a picture postcard from real life.
The Inkhearts are from Skelmersdale and play joyous indie pop- sort of like the classic guitar rushes of Postcard Records in their early 80s heyday – that sound of the impossibly brilliant opportunities of youth when the world is yours- really upbeat and simply thrilling honey.” Read the full review on Louder Than War here.
