7/10 Robin Staff review, 01 August 2018

Big music season! This is actually some of the biggest music I’ve heard in a while, the Love Language breaching previously known decibel records for anthemic indie rock. As they pulverise their way towards utopia I’m endeared by their endless commitment to glistening, their never-stopping oscillations and their shout-sung vox. And hidden somewhere deep in this cavernous sound is the fact that this is basically hyper-decorated piano rock. Long live ‘Baby Grand’.

Even the softer moments are pretty blown out. “Sister Doldrums” is, by their standards, a ditty, opening with gorgeous acoustic strums before a stockpile of distortion comes in underneath newly-yelled lyrics. It’s music as pure, boundless escapism, making true on promises of old rock stars who wanted to run away and break free with their music. The Love Language go above and beyond with everything they do; listen to even these songs, not yet marching to a beat, find their shimmer.

“Shared Spaces” sees the band experiment with some outerspace sonics, turning their attention to bleating synthwork and the kind of programmed beat that keeps the lights LED. When they’re not filling songs with antics, they become bangers like this, the room emptied so you can hear how loud it is. “Shared Spaces” is proof of the dancier appeal of this band, their potential to create synth-pop magic if they want. A massive record for people with massive hearts.
