"... An aesthetic gem ..."

Just received our Narc Magasine review and we could not be more delighted ...

"Drawn from a range of musical backgrounds, the members of Darlington's Ihrsan coalesce with amiable results on this, their latest pop rock ditty. There's no deeper meaning or raw emotion behind it, yet Laugh Like Scooby Doo is nevertheless an aesthetic gem, both in the contrast between its clean and fuzz-drenched guitar hooks and in the muffled, washed-out cloaking of Tamsin Harrison's (TD's) vocal - a description which doubtless sounds terrible on paper, but on record works a treat. Perhaps more pertinantly, it's a tune whose obvious nods to Blondie, The Strnglers et al never descend into idle retroism. In fact, the most dated thing about it is probably old Scooby himself - 2019's loss, needless to say"

Huge thanks to Narc Magasine's Ali Welford for taking the time to do this review.
