"Age of Denial" builds on the previous 'nu-gazing' (shoegazing) base of previous releases and adds a maturity to the songwriting, production and arrangements.

If you imagine Teenage Fanclub style vocals with Spiritualized style guitars, now augmented with Peter Hook-ish basslines and some Sigur Ros post-rock bells and whistles you'd be close to the Sennen 'sound'.

I mean all of that in a good way: Sennen are not simply aping those influences - they have developed their own uplifting atmosphere and style.

Highly recommended.

This album finds Sennen at their most accessible, presenting a collection of brilliantly written and performed songs that garnered criminally little attention in the press. Best described as exhilarating, they combine fuzzed-out, wall-of-sound guitars with light and wistful vocal harmonies. There is a fullness to their sound that is quite infectious, even when the tempo is a bit slower, for example on Falling Down and the stately, majestic Broken Promise (the climax of the album). Clearly influenced by post-rock, Sennen have the ability to build up a head of steam over a few minutes then change tack with alarming ease, frequently pulling startling beauty out of a swirling maelstrom of noise. This album makes a stunning listen, with not a moment wasted. Highly, highly recommended!
