Released: 12th Apr 2012



Released: 23rd Apr 2012


angular, intricate & intelligent compositions, coupling singer amber papini’s idiosyncratic songwriting & incisive lyrics with the band's rich arrangements.

exploring themes of youth, new york & the bittersweet commingling of past & present, guitar hooks are balanced with a cultivated melody & papini's lyrics create a moonstruck, even cinematic vision of new york city. the production imbues the entire record with an intimate yet prodigious sound, layering period keyboards with horns, synthesisers & treated guitars. highlights include ‘friends of friends’ with its heavy intro, swingin' breakdown & horn riffs & ‘the birthday’ with its police referencing nimble bass & lockstep drum rhythm.
