A glistening spread of sounds that swoop down and sweep you up like a benevolent winged protector - big recommendation for anyone who likes peering at their kicks the band’s proverbial follow up to 'Delaware', a modern Drop Nineteens record that is completely singular in its sound and vision.

The guitar reverb is expansive as ever. Ackell and Kelley’s vocals are crystalline. “Scapa Flow,” is triumphant. An excellent example of what a modern day Drop Nineteens song sounds like. The guitars glide like clouds on a blue sky day, drums shuffle in the background, searching. Ackell and Kelley’s vocals are cool toned and dreamy, bound up in a haze of reverb. It’s unquestionably lovely. You could say the same for the whole of the record. Hard Light is so lovely. A portrait of a band 30 years later, as talented and as dedicated to their craft as ever.
