The last time we featured Good Good Blood here it was the soft and fragile "Fallen Leaves", but Smith is back with some - if not too much - swagger on "The Day I Was Born".

Built around a languid acoustic strum and simple backbeat, Smith's vocals sound double tracked to create sweet harmonies firmly in the alt.country bracket. Reminiscent of Hiss Golden Messenger at their most laidback, there's a little psychedelia fluttering at the edges of the track as an electric guitar guides us to an all-too-early fadeout. Good Good Blood are sounding altogether more hopeful right now, brightening the corners of previously darkened rooms.

"The Day I Was Born" is taken from Sun Of A Gun, out 4 December via Smith's Fox Food Records.
