9/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 21 February 2014
This is an easy one. ‘Talking Backwards’ is the lead off single from the group’s second album for Domino and, as you can imagine, it’s super chill. Recorded, along with the rest of ‘Atlas’, at Wilco’s Loft studio, ‘Talking Backwards’ sounds confident and comfortable. Second album? They ain’t sweatin’ it.
All the elements are in place but this time round it comes complete with a “lets get this in a couple of takes” attitude. Very laidback and not in anyway laboured. Particularly fond of new guy Jackson Pollis’ beat on this. He’s a good egg. Flip it and we’re treated to a Mondanile offcut entitled ‘Beneath The Dunes’, a typically charming Prefab Sprout-esque affair with a cool vocal and solo from The Duck as well as more Would have sat nicely on either ‘Atlas’ or ‘The Flower Lane’ and worth the money alone. So happy.
