Reliably informed

The new release from Middlesbrough-hailing trio Church, Honey is a melodic slice of indie folk which exhibits a lot of promise and a strong command of pop-inflected songcraft in its lyrics, which paint a vivid, lovelorn narrative.

I’d Go Blind comes very close to greatness, but unfortunately falls short by rushing itself too keenly to the finishing line. There is plenty to admire here, especially in the miraculous chorus (which is a colossal earworm). However, I feel that the song’s potential is sullied by the way in which it rushes from the final verse to a climactic breakdown which seems to end before it can truly take off, which is frustrating given the sheer talent that is on display here.
