8/10 Clinton Staff review, 21 November 2013

More music from the strange sons of the bleak Manchester overcoat brigade. Using churning post punk riffs and the type of tinny keyboards Bernard Sumner started tinkering with towards the end of Joy Division they provide a backdrop for frontman Gareth Smith to half mumble/half rant over the top. The opening title track is dark and swirling, one part The Twilight Sad, one part Arab Strap. ‘French Playground’ continues the spoken word type theme this time with a churning,  droning backdrop.

‘I Got Lucky’ has some heavy ‘Metal Box’ style dark dub action with bass and crashing drums to the fore. The atmospherics here are great though by this point the vocals are getting a little samey and I may have even preferred this as an instrumental. The tension in the track is terrific though and you may want to carry a knife when listening. ‘Plane to Belgium’ is more in an early Joy Division with spindly guitars and deep, dark angry voice. Stranger Son do a great job of recreating early 80’s rain drenched Manchester, a sound slightly at odds as their happy smiling faces on the back cover.
