touches on everything from Motown & the output of Memphis' Stax Records to the immaculately produced pop of the 1970s, via Frankie Valli & David Bowie.
it's a gorgeous record that Skips along from the celebratory, upbeat, pure pop rush of the title track via the lovelorn urgency of 'Not Mine To Love', to the slowburn majesty of the horn-lead 'The Queen's Nose' - which showcases Rebecca's emotional, lung-bursting vocals. While most bands seem happy to rest on their laurels, afraid to push their sound forward, multi-instrumentalists Rebecca Taylor & Charles Watson, get a bit bored of recreating the same things over & over. So while their 2009 debut 'Yeah So', was a beautifully ramshackle collection of country & folk-tinged strumalongs & 2011's 'Paradise' pushed & pulled the band into myriad new musical directions, nothing can quite prepare you for the quantum leap that takes place on their beautifully epic 3rd album.
