London four piece Scanners return with a dark glittering double A side ‘Salvation/Baby Blue’ from their soon to be released album ‘Submarine’. Whereas ‘Salvation’ is a dark, sinister brooding, mini Goth pop opera replete with menacing hypnotic bass line, sensual vocals and ominous keyboard riff ‘Baby Blue,’ is it’s polar opposite. It’s a song which sparkles like the sun glistening on an undulating stream, sounding like a sultry indie version of the Mamas and Papas. It’s all rather marvelous and certainly wets the appetite for the album which is released on 21st March.

Sounds like ?: Lust, despair, obsession, joy, redemption and hope.

  1. Oh, yeah. Another new band on a Von Pip recommendation. These gals sound rather interesting.

    I enjoyed the chanting thump of “Salvation”

    and yeah – “Baby Blue” is rather uplifting, isn’t it?

    I head a touch of Dee Dee Dum Dum in the lead vocalists voice as well.

    Great stuff!
