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.
Sublime and sometimes intense listening, get this now and rediscover the joy of indie. 4/5
