Before we all getting into the Christmas spirit, I would like you to know about this Brightonian formation, called Dear Prudence. Yes, after that The Beatles song in a Siouxsie and The Banshees cover. The people behind the name are Madeleine Poncia front lady, Rick Ahir guitarist, Paul Egan bassist, Andy Highmore keyboardist and Alexis Nunez drummer.
I think I first heard about Dear Prudence when I was looking through this year`s Reading Festival line-up (they played BBC Introducing Stage). As usual, I didn`t care much and my festival schedule was full but few weeks later somehow, I got to listen to 'Coming Apart Again' and it proved how talented they are and I had to regret not seeing them live.

The pier, carousels, rollercoasters, Brighton-Eye (that`s how I call that wheel, not sure if it`s the real name of it though), eating candy floss, hanging out with friends, etc...not the typical beach vibes but Brighton-beach vibes. If you go there, you might understand...might not - I see things in strange angle sometimes.
The other thing I love is Madi`s voice. So unique and beautiful. Once you`ve heard it sure you can`t find any example for who`s got the same voice as her. But let me know if you do! She also sings on one of the new Lower Than Atlantis songs.
