6/10 Mike Staff review, 19 June 2014
It's a bold move to name your band after an art movement, so I had high hopes for the levels of ambition to be found on Young British Artists' debut LP. Sadly, however, it's sorely lacking the confrontational sass that defined their visual artist namesakes, opting instead to plod firmly down the middle of the road trod by the likes of Money, Alt-J, Biffy Clyro and The National.   Which isn't to say it's atrocious, it isn't, but its misty-eyed mid-paced moodiness never really finds a clear identity. They have a nice line in weird organ and guitar drones that glue together sometimes brittle guitar melodies in a churning shoegazey swirl, the singer's voice is quite rich and pleasant and hits the right notes without the aid of autotune, but I'm finding it strangely lacking in memorable tunes or a distinctive aesthetic. Workmanlike, promising even, but I'm not sure they quite live up to their name. If you like your indie rock moody and mid-paced, however, you may well disagree! By all means leave your own review for balance if you do.
