8/10 Brian Staff review, 07 April 2011
Funny title this. It's like the kind of thing everyone says but it has a sort of poeticism to it eh? I'm unsure what to write about these as they don't really fit comfortably into a box which is obviously a good selling point from the off. The first track is mid-paced anthemic indie rock with a mild skank & bags of personality. He has a strong impassioned voice does the singer-y chaplet. Apparently this fellow Ad from the band recently developed guitar-a-phobia so bought a synth to tinker with, with which he makes some of the most delightful twinkling bloopy noises (see 'Duck in the Oven') since the Sophtware Slump by those Californian skater beards, Grandaddy. The third track 'Sleeping On Tightropes' sounds a great deal like Elbow with a stately organ line & bags of swirling atmosphere building into a rousing crescendo. I was wondering if the closer to this EP would be acoustic & hey! It is! I'm obviously the new Derren Brown. So it's initially a ponderous guitar & yearning vocal thing which sounds like my second cousin's brother's band from Tunbridge Wells. His voice is allowed to breathe even more fully here as strings and a choral collective called the Opor Singers are gradually introduced to embellish the undeniably accomplished atmosphere. This isn't massively my bag to be truthful but it's all so passionately, warmly executed it'd take a hard heart not be touched!!
