London-via-Kendal four piece Woman’s Hour are set to release their debut single ‘To The End / Our Love Has No Rhythm’ through Parlour Records on 8th April.

Already embraced by 6 Music, XFM and Radio 1, Woman’s Hour seamlessly blends post-punk aesthetics with R&B sensuality. Though far from derivative, upon first listen Woman’s Hour immediately call to mind The xx (melodically more so than sonically). More accurately, Woman’s Hour blends The xx with Jessie Ware, with perhaps a hint of Sade.

Deeply atmospheric, the synths are suitably analogue coating the songs deep with an 80’s aura. Sprawling (both tracks clock in around 4:30 each), moody and dreamy as the music may be, the soft and sensual vocal hooks create a luscious and surprisingly catchy brand of synth pop.

It’s a rare feat that both the A-side and the B-side are as strong as another but the debut single from the London four piece is an absolute peach. Both tracks demonstrate the band’s pop crafting ability without being formulaic.

“To The End / Our Love Has No Rhythm” is an entrancing and alluring debut.  Expect massive things for this exciting new band.

The single will be released on 8 April, 2013. Pre-order on 7″ vinyl now.
