Wildcard (week 22):
The Lathums – Lucky Bean

Early in March of this year, The Lathums put Lucky Bean forward as the โ€˜focus trackโ€™ of their sophomore album From Nothing To A Little Bit More. Ten weeks into the promo campaign, it is now out as an official single. A great choice, which sounds like the perfect cross of The Proclaimers, The Smiths and The Boo Radleys. The upbeat, summer-y track pairs jangling guitars, plenty of horns and even a harmonica. Itโ€™s early โ€˜90s all over again!

Lucky Bean looks back on a romance of the Wigan bandโ€™s singer and songwriter Alex Moore. โ€œItโ€™s a song about love,โ€ he explains, โ€œspeaking of a doomed relationship at a time when I thought weโ€™d be together forever and have kids. At the time, I used to call that person my lucky bean.โ€ The relationship soured between writing and recording, but at least it resulted in one of the best pop moments of the year so far. A bittersweet skiffle-pop track thatโ€™s ready to warm the hearts of festival attendees.

The Lathumsโ€™ new single Lucky Bean is this weekโ€™s Carte Blanche Music Wildcard. That means itโ€™ll be featured prominently at the top of the blog for a full seven days.
