Customer Review

on 5 July 2007
3 brothers from Wakefield set out from a background of avant-rock and alternative awkwardness and create... a brilliant pop record. This debut album is full of amazing songs like 'The Lights Went Out' and 'You Were Always The One' with great melodies and sharp lyrics. 'Another Number' is a simple, infectious indie classic that will melt your heart. 'Direction' and 'Third Outing' close the record with a nod to the band's angrier, more confrontational future, and to their discordant roots. In fact, 'Direction' is the track that showcases the juxtaposition of sweet pop songwriting with a ragged sonic aesthetic that recalls Sonic Youth. It's a great shame that the band has largely dropped these songs from its live setlist but this remains a great album and essential for fans of the band.
