So everyone has an album that made them sit up and look around. And here was a band that, if you can believe it for one second, produced a second album with a sound that took their classic guitar pop, mixed it with a dash of violin and alarming folk tendancies, and stirred it all up with a big magical wooden stick named angst and bitterness. Tracks "Cartoon Boyfriend", "Goodnight Though" and "Room 410" overflow with dark, twisted romance whilst others "Unfaithful", "Golden Green" and "Piece of Sky" are like some sweet someone you Love telling you how they hope you'll die soon. Through a perfect smile. And we all know how that feels. Er, well I do anyway. Which is why Hup connects - right deep down in the pit of your stomach.
