It didn't come with any blurb so I had to do a bit of research while listening to opening song 'Sleeping Bears', a lovely shimmer of languid harmonies with a Midlake-esque lilt. By the time 'Biting My Tongue' had almost shuffled off its wistful country twang, I discover that they're actually a London-based supergroup – and a super group – consisting of previous members of bands such as Garlic, Thunderclap Newman and Cornershop. And when the amazing 'Rose' locks into its sultry, rolling gait I'm smitten, hook, line and sinker, with their reflective, dust-bowl confessions. Available through all digital outlets, make this record your first blind purchase of
the year, before the second album drops in the not-too-distant future. (4.5/5)
"I know ‘interesting’ can mean a number of different things, but on this occasion it’s definitely good. Combining elements of indie, with a darker style of chamber pop Bully Bully Bully and the equally as good Arlene’s Grocery have enough about them to suggest that we should hear more of this strangely named four-piece."
