Ham handed

Ham Sandwich’s new single “The Naturist”*, is simple, charming folk pop. Quaint melodies, twinned with simultaneously jangling and hard-hitting percussion, underpin the twee harmonies created by Podge and Niamh’s shared vocals. Niamh’s voice in particular is light and sweet, (like candyfloss, or possibly a meringue) and tenderly emotive. There are handclaps, there are bells, there are chimes decorating a song that gradually builds to an ornately layered, soaring pique.

Ham Sandwich, you had me at banjo.
