This band's debut is released on a fan-funded record label, but it seems like the big boys missed a trick - these fans knew what they were doing.
Opener The First Word Is The Hardest is a taste of what follows - breathy, plaintive lyrics and lilting melody that slowly build to a euphoric climax of tidal drums and soaring vocals.
This is a cracking debut; like shoe-gazer stars Elbow given a shot of epic, Mogwai-esque cinematics in the arm.
Sweeping, surging soundscapes are weaved into poppy riffs and melodies, leaving the likes of Coldplay and Delays for dead.
