Cattle & Cane it

Mirrors (Quiet Crown Recordings)

Fronted up by Teesside siblings Helen and Joe Hammill, Cattle & Cane have confirmed their position as one of the region’s finest bands over the last year or so, especially with some stunning live shows. And with this, their second studio album, they demonstrate the knack of penning some great songs, too. Their stock-in-trade is classic songwriting, drawing deep from the well of the Fleetwood Mac infused 1970s, and on this collection of new songs they pull out all of the stops with tunes that really soar. And those delicious harmonies hit just about every sweet spot going. Bravo.
