Encore, Un Effort!
melodic punk indie-pop, splattered with Pete Dale’s wry lyrics & simple, direct guitar riffs.
The album features several duets with Sophie Evans, who sings on over half the songs, adding both a sweetness and a sassyness to their sound. These duets show different sides to relationships from shyness to bickering and from lust to indifference. The album also sees a return to “political” (as opposed to purely romantic) concerns on songs like ‘Le Revolution Politique’ – Pete’s first ever song written in French, calling for political revolution. "As clumsy as the scissor marks undoubtedly are, there's a certain internal logic to the philosophy espoused and the jaunty lack of polish. " - 8/10 the 405
