04/01/2016 – Tuff Love-Crocodiles (2015)

Glaswegian duo gear up for album release, and world domination



Tuff Love make the kind of music that it is easy to fall in love with. There is an abundance wonky melody and siren-dreamlike vocals that wrap everything up in a vaporous blanket. Since last month Crocodiles has been on heavy rotation.



From the opening lightly strummed chords, that abruptly get heavy and chuggy, it reminds you of Britpop B-sides. Everything is there that made you buy love the A-Side, but there is a slightly lo-fi sheen the proceedings. This makes for a delicious listen, as you don’t know if they will make it to the end in one piece of if the whole thing will fall over under its own glee and elation that the song is actually being recorded.



Later this month Tuff Love will release the album Resort, that complies their previous three EP’s into one serviceable album. Given the strength of this trio of releases, Resort looks set to be on a loop until the middle of February, and if you have any sense, you’ll end up doing the same. 2016 will be the year of Tuff Love!
