Tees duo Naomi Lowe and musical maestro Andy Johnson (AKA Cherry Head, Cherry Heart) have hatched a pop masterpiece. They grab us by the lapels and fling us through a glorious golden pop whirl, replete with silky smooth vocals.

Top tunes, hooky singalong choruses, but ever-thoughtful wordage, this is style with substance, from the glitterball to thoughtful psychedelia. The album veers from classic upbeat tunes, bouncing back into soulful balladeering, and from bossa nova to Abba-esque arabesque.

With an ear on the past and an eye on the future they entreat us to tune in to this soundtrack and manifesto to get our kicks along the A66.
