the ever-restless group have reached remarkable new heights, boldly embracing new songwriting forms & production techniques whilst retaining the thrilling idiosyncrasies that have made their catalogue to date, so challenging, memorable & charming.

on their 4th album, the Kendal 4 piece continue to burst with innovation & vitailty but never at the expense of a good pop song. drawing further from 'spirit of eden' talk talk, they hone their distinctly delicate flourishes into eerier, more complex & dense arrangements that make for an utterly engrossing & dazzling record. for fans of villagers, dutch uncles or local natives. "their most beautiful, arresting & accomplished album to date" 9.5/10 - the 405, "plainly their best album yet" 4/5 - guardian, "unbelievably precious" 9/10 - nme.
