It’s been almost 18 months since we heard the delightful debut EP from Hidden Highways aka Vertigo Smyth and Carol Anne McGowan. They’ve been busy working on their debut album, Old Hearts Reborn, which finally gets released via Out On A Limb Records on Friday, September 13. ‘Next Time Round’ is the closing track on the album, and find the duo broody but optimistic. It’s a heavy track, with a reverberating bass creating a cavernous sound – I saw Hidden Highways play in Mitchelstown Cave last year and it seemed like the perfect fit. I don’t expect the preceding songs on the debut album to offer anything strikingly different to this; I expect a contemplative, cathartic album, one that touches a nerve, makes neck hair shimmer and emotions stir up.
