Relative unknowns the High Wire walk that fine line between brilliance and boredom in the epic and ethereal â€˜Saint Beesâ€™, a hazy, psyche-delicate number that clearly owes its sainthood to (the) Jesus (and Mary Chain). Heavenly hooks turn on the hinge of some finely placed organs and the angelic backing vocals of Emma McGlynn and A Girl Called Eddy. â€œOne hand to pray, and one to wave goodbye, one to hold you closeâ€â€” the High Wire manages to do it all, and all at once. Amen.
