State Broadcasters: a gentle swirl of strings, harp, banjo and Scottish accents are the latest band to release an album on Stow College’s student-run label, Electric Honey. The Glasgow six-piece’s debut is an innocent folk-pop swoon, with stories of bunk beds, grass-stained knees and autumn leaves giving a naive wholesomeness to their Americana sound.
No wheels are being reinvented here, and the lilting melancholy and whistle solos will be too sleepy for some, but if you want to be soothed with stories of cups of tea and first love, then here’s a very melodic way to do it.
