These Sheffield sons have created a seamless album, mixing together dreamy soul tinged ditties along with uplifting, dance infused tracks, flecked with electronic gold. With touches of Royksopp, Zero 7 and fragments of Air's Moon Safari, this is a veritable audio treat for any ears.
'Goodbye' begins the sweet seduction of the listener, with its ethereal tones rising up slowly and swelling to a terrific climax of strings and synths. Intensely cinematic, it explains why the band are so in demand for penning scores for film, television and advertising.
The vein of seductive dreaminess continues throughout The Sun Will Come; everything drips with a mesmeric quality. The honeyed, soulful voice of Briony Greenhill on the slow burning 'Nobody Loves You (The Way I Do)' is intoxicating as she almost playfully promises 'I'll take you places you have never been'. This is moody, lo-fi heaven of the highest order.
But when the album does veer into more into more electronica inspired areas, it does so with gusto. No sparse beats, nor an excessive amount of beeps and pips, just the most pin sharp, exacting noises, timed to perfection. Every single iota of noise seems to have been put in place with the most tender and precise of hands and infused with an intense joy.
The Sun Will Come is reminiscent of sitting under trees on warm days; dappled sunlight breaking through the leaves, allowing you to reach an almost Zen-like state: a higher state of musical consciousness, if you will. The only bugbear is that it does not contain their haunting cover of 'Love Will Tear Us Apart', but nonetheless, this is still a remarkable and impressive album. --Kate Sharp
