Manchester’s idiosyncratic art-popologists present the latest chapter in their brilliantly witty, hip-swiveling, left-field adventures.

Their fifth studio albums takes musical inspiration from Kate Bush's ‘The Red Shoes’, ‘Low’-era David Bowie, East European techno, and some slightly-less fashionable records belonging to their Dads. Functioning as ten distinct pieces, each tackling a different topic, including austerity cuts, therapy, fried chicken, paranoia and coming to terms with loneliness, ‘Big Balloon’ might be the band’s finest album, taking listeners on an exhilarating cerebral journey. “A high-flying triumph” 8/10 - uncut
