catfish & the bottlemen
Universal / Island
a collection of bold, blistering, swashbuckling pop anthems - their not-so-difficult 2nd album sets them up for super-stardom & especially for those all important festival stages.
the Welsh four-piece’s fearless, riffing follow-up to 2014’s rollicking 'The Balcony', is "a masterclass in exuberant, let-tonight-last-forever indie - 'Twice' & 'Soudcheck', in particular, were built for raucous festival crowds - before 2 gems glisten on the home straight. 'Glasgow' & 'Heathrow' are both gorgeous & reveal a softer, melodically piercing side to a band breaking confidently into its stride". “I feel like the last album was the support band, or even the soundcheck and this one’s the headliner,” says charismatic frontman Van McCann.
