Tuff Love

Sometimes in life, it’s nice if things stay simple. Simple like Scottish trio Tuff Love’s new single ‘Sweet Discontent’, which is, as its title says, a lightly-spun (if unrequited) love song, darkened by minor chord yearning.

Granted, that’s nothing terrifically radical, though the band’s ‘The-xx-fronting-Veronica-Falls’ schtick is so tacit, so natural, that you wind up falling for it with all your heart by the time ‘Sweet Discontent’ is through.

Tuff Love will give the single, and their new ‘Junk’ EP, a live send-off with a show at The Old Hairdressers in Glasgow on 2 May. ‘Junk’ comes out the following (ie next) Monday, though if you order it now in advance you’ll win a copy of ‘Tough Love’ right away.
