Flick The V's is a departure from the sound of KC Rules OK and Bombshell. Whilst these albums showed how great a songwriter he is, this new collection of songs highlight his more experimental side.
There are still plenty of gorgeous songs on here. Not least "Camels Swapped For Wives" a simultaneously heartbreaking and uplifting song about the effects of mental illness on the whole family. It is beautiful and sang from experience. The leading single "Coast On By" (co-written by Steve Mason) is as catchy as anything he's done before.
