Dead serious these lot. They have a very serious sleeve with lots of smoke coming out of a volcano on one side and on the other a very serious looking industrial area, somewhere akin to Middlesbrough. The song starts deadly serious, however, when they sing cuckold, it sounds rather like cuckoo. The song builds in momentum, the vocals somewhere between Nick Cave and the man from Fields of the Nephilim.
They are English but are obviously looking towards America’s vast open spaces for inspiration, the B Side ‘Spinning As We Turn’ is kind of like The Waterboys ‘Whole of The Moon’ re-written by Bruce Springsteen for a concept album about the world ending and everyone suffering a grizzly death. I’m reminded of Band of Horses but even more noticeably The National. Amongst all the doom laden imagery this is the most terrifying of all - that The National are having influence on today’s youth. Still, it’s all nicely executed and there is an understated grace to the way the songs build slowly introducing tension and atmosphere.
