Woke Up Right

Neo-Romantic

Sonically & lyrically interesting, this is artful stuff. Best to read their entertaining song explanations on their blog. My favourites (as usual) are the quieter moments written by Barry Andrews. Soft Estate is absolutely mesmering, while Horrors of the Deep shimmeringly continues their long-standing underwater series. Woke Up Wrong is another favourite, an intriguing self portrait. All the songs are memorable in their own way, from earworm 80s self-tribute song now Those Days are Gone (a bit of a strained vocal from Carl and not a representative opener) to the closer Bernadette which literally winds down the album with it's strange melody. Beyond Metropolis & And Everything Like That are lyrically clever and fantastic tunes. For me this band are an unsung national treasure. It's hard to work out why they are ignored by British crtitics & radio. Anyhow it's aural pleasure from the strange landscapes of their minds, and we are gratefully listening & appreciating it.
