David R Black are a Manchester three piece who deal in clean cut accessible indie rock. There is no faulting their ability to write some great melodies, and there are moments on ‘Secret City’ that hint at something great. The funk tinged glam rock of ‘Dark Side Of Her’ sounds superb as does ‘Crawl’, with its grunge-esque edge. The band take in a range of influences and deliver some memorable tunes along the way.
