Northern Promise, 19 May 2003
This Album has shunned the recent preference of many in the music press to heap praise on the new wave of rock. Instead it carves a wonderful blend naivety and vision. The band all under 21 has developed a music sense in isolation from fashion and the result is clear. It takes inspiration from Nick Drake and provides a wonderful antidote to recent rock, while avoiding becoming to shy and reluctant to illustrate their determination. While at times basic it shows wonderful promise for their years and begs the question what will they achieve later if they can accomplish this now.
