The A side track on this, Anchor, is lovely. A plodding and emotional minimal pop song that manages to do the epic indie thing without coming off too Coldplay. On the flip he sails dangerously close to Martin & Co territory too, opening with a piano-led number which is thankfully too fragile and haunting for any prolonged comparisons Britain's smuggest indie titans to hold water. This is downbeat, soulful indie rock with quite organic tones...like you can hear the room the piano was recorded in. Oh, now some violins have joined in. This is from the Tindersticks school of soul-crushingly downbeat indie rock and it's executed beautifully, but it's not exactly anything new. Still, he's got a lovely voice (like Jeff Buckley meets that guy from Razorlight?) and some very pretty songs. Little bit overwrought in places for my taste, but if you like that melodramatic and highly emotional but still tasteful indie sound then you might be into this.
