As childhood nicknames go, `Arthur' and `Yu' are pretty cool, an ethos that evidently stuck through to record-producing adulthood. They flirt with twee harmonies but immerse them with lashings of reverb and 60s folk-pop sensibilities to create an effortless and dreamy collection. Arthur's echo-y drawl and occasional whistle bring Peter, Björn and John to mind, if they were anything but one trick ponies. This sound however is decidedly less showy, but no less pretty.
Nodding album highlight `Afterglow', like most, is an understated display in druggy acoustics and electric jangles, which firmly imprints the Velvet Underground as an influence. Equally familiar is `Ghost Of Old Bull Lee', which featured on the best of 2007 Rough Trade album, a sure sign of its pedigree. `1000 Words' is a lesser number, but does feature a credible James Walsh impersonation. Make of that what you will. `Come To View (Song For Neil Young)' does what it says on the tin.
In Camera has that proper indie feel about it missing in so many records, albeit heavily diluted with pop. They've taken risks and pulled them off, and the result is near picture perfect.
