Rousing style indie rock from a group who are topping the Isle of Wight's finest list (unless you include bass-worrying '80s funksters Level 42). It's got a huge chorus, driving bass and likeable sounding voices. It's a fairly conventional song, structure-wise, but it has a swathed-in-reverb style production that almost gives Surfer Blood a run for their moolah. It has enough character to endear itself to the random listener as it has no foul language, abrasive frequencies and - a bit like that Justin Bieber movie - has no threat or peril whatsoever. The flip side is the obligatory acoustic number. It's called "Waltz Alone" and is quite nice but it makes me think of Jack Johnson falling into a mincer (I mean an industrial style mincer that you can make sausages with, not Richard Fairbrass) at the bottom of a reverb chamber...It's more of a ballad type affair, with a stripped down feel - a song that has a lazy yearning type quality. Not bad at all...but a far cry from the greatness that is "The Chinese Way"...
