The View have kicked off their career with three stellar singles (Wasted Little DJs, Superstar Tradesman and the insanely infectious Same Jeans), all brilliantly-crafted pieces of raucous indie-rock that you'd have to be dead not to appreciate, overlaid with some smart, cheekily rasped poetics.

But what about the rest? Thankfully the band have plenty more up their sleeve in the frenetic Skag Trendy, bouncy Dance Into The Night and more.

The consummate rag-and-bone aesthetic falters only on occasion, notably the overlong strum of Face For The Radio, but otherwise charms its way into your head.

Now The View are here, Dundee can be proud of more than its cake. 4/5
