‘Do You Say Hello to Your Neighbours’ b/w’ Honeymoon’ is the new single from Glasgow band Savage Mansion and was released on Lost Map records at the end of May. Lead by Craig Angus the band released a fine four track EP last year, ‘Everyone to the Savage Mansion.’ These two tracks more than deliver on the promise shown there.
‘Do You Say Hello to Your Neighbours’ is driven along by a lazy guitar riff which suits the subject matter perfectly as Angus wonders whether we still interact with people around us as we did in our younger days. The songs slightly sideways observations will resonate with many as we try to decide if modern life is rubbish or simply different.
‘Honeymoon’ is a glorious helter skelter of a song, the running time of just over a minute proving more than enough to get the job done. Brevity is a definite strength here, the songs infectious nature sure to have the listener pressing play again.
