Mind Fire / letter down
Brighton’s Theo Verney might have come to attention touting the kind of Sabbath-influenced heavy wares more suited to the Download stage, but now the singer’s returned with the first cut from his forthcoming debut solo record (due July 7th), and it’s a whole world of surprises.
Full of expansive acoustic guitars and classic melodies, ‘Mind Fire’ is more Tom Petty than Tony Iommi - the kind of Neil Young-influenced track made for basking on the porch on a balmy summer’s day, feet up while cracking open a cold one. Proof that, beneath the riffs, Verney’s had some pretty damn good melodic chops hiding all along.
