Last Friday (19 April 2013), was BBC Radio Wales' "Wales Music Day" and the Manic Street Preachers recorded a new tune especially for the event. Titled "See It Like Sutherland", the track is an instrumental with hints of early Cocteau Twins and Mogwai in the mix. Throw in a trace of the melodies on the 2nd half of the band's own unheralded masterpiece, Lifeblood, and you've got a wonderful new bit of music from these 3 lads and a clue as to the new direction they're heading into following their brief hiatus.
(And, like a lot of their stuff, I had to look up a reference in this Manic Street Preachers tune. If you don't know who this "Sutherland" is, check out this link:
