Second full-length album from The Drink, an ethereal indie-pop band whose members also play / have played in groups like The Wharves and Shield Your Eyes. The latter band might surprise you, as nothing on Capital sounds much like them, but The Drink do have similarly dead-on chemistry. Out on Melodic.

7/10 Clinton Staff review, 11 November 2015

Featuring members of the Wharves, The Drink are a different proposition altogether as they marry Cate Le Bon’s odd pop nous with a Stereolab-ish groove. Their songs are complicated, convoluted affairs yet played with the same charming c86 naivety as the likes of Standard Fare. The fantastically monikered Dearbhla Minogue’s voice is impossibly high  - so high at times that I’m convinced that I’m missing certain lines because I’m using human ears not dog ones. They are at their best when they use the kind of swirling tree climbing melodies also utilised by the likes of Gwenno and Jane Weaver. The initial highlight being ‘Roller’ which bursts out of it’s cutesy indie ghetto with a chorus of which Super Furry Animals would be proud.

I may have just used the words cutesy but the Drink are a clever pop band with intricate arrangements. That they slather it with honeyed harmonies is their prerogative. It does sit them however just at the mid point where Throwing Muses meets Heavenly.
