if you wait
metal & dust
filled with textures, colours, shadings & interjections that are subtle yet deliver devastating power, the trio's electrifying cinematic pop debut more than delivers on their considerable promise.
most of the songs build beautifully from the barest of bones & gradually, Hannah’s soaring vocals propel them & the energy rises & although each track is incredibly spacious, every one is lush, hazy & warm. "a magnificent, downbeat, modern British pop record...Major & Rothman deftly balance their sound somewhere between the immediate & the restrained, feeling vital but rarely obtrusive. Whether that's in the faltering pianos, taut guitars & shuddering breaks of 'Stay Awake', the indistinct throbs of 'Strong' or the brittle, sharply-plucked atmospherics of 'Shyer', each track is coated in a carefully honed gossamer mist that serves to suspends Reid's forlorn vocals at their centre" 9/10 - dis.
