given to the wild


limited 2lp + download

Released: 9th Jan 2011


out of stock

an epic & beguiling slice of distorted pop, psychedelia & soulful guitar wig outs - their most adventurous work yet.

taking sonic inspiration from a disparate collection of musical peers such as the stone roses, kate bush, talk talk & david bowie, ‘given to the wild’ finds the band exploring new territory. television & thin lizzy-inspired guitar hooks pop out of washed-out soundscapes, where programmed loops & phrases are blended against the band backdrop. great stuff! “if only all bands had the guts & honesty of the maccabees, maybe they’d get round to making 3rd records as good as this” – bbc, “elegant & unexpected” 4/5 - guardian.
