The record showcases Poor Things songwriting skills perfectly and highlights the band’s ability to deliver up tempo, alt-indie dance floor classics that has seen them gain support from the likes of Glasgow PodcArt, BBC Radio 1 – Introducing and Artrocker.
This songwriting ability can be found in songs such as the recent download track ‘Ice Cream’ which can be downloaded from the stream below-

Opening track, ‘Beachcomber’, sets the scene well; with guitars and percussion going head to head in a duel. Craig Angus plays ringmaster to these behemoths, reigning them in with his honest and sincere lyrics. ‘Summer Clutch’ and free download ‘Morgan’ also comes across in a similar vein; with cloudy dappled guitar riffs and addictive melodies, Poor Things create perfect pop-rock moments in which to get dreamily caught up in.
Originally from Perth and consisting of Craig Angus (Guitar, Vocals), Richard Stratton (Bass, Guitar, Vocals) and Gavin Redford (Drums) the three-piece cite Teenage Fanclub, Pavement and Grandaddy as influences, but their guitar driven alt-indie rock comes flavoured with euphoric moments similar to The Smashing Pumpkins, allied with melodies akin to the likes of Weezer. Bolstered by turbulent rolling drum beats and engulfed by high intensity guitar lines, Hurricane Poor Things comes as a battering of the senses – music in which the listener can lose all inhibition.
The band recently supported mighty Scottish rockers Fat Goth, indie stalwarts Little Comets at King Tuts, appeared at Brew At The Bog and have been added to the T Break Stage at this year’s T In The Park, capping an exciting 2013 so far.
