the sweeping, expansive new album from the huge indie ensemble restates their ability to provide the joyous music we need, at the precise moment when we need it most.

seven years since we celebrated with their last record, ‘hug of thunder’ marks a welcome return of leslie feist and Emily haines to the mix and the delectable dreaminess that their presence brings – just check that wonderful title track. elsewhere the epic potential of this collective comes to the fore once again through brassy crescendos, sugar rushes of percussion, love-soaked songwriting, and soaring guitar set pieces (big shout out to do make say think’s Ohad Benchetrit for the wonderment his axe-wielding brings). the title has it completely right, this is an album of warm power – like sunshine bursting through clouds. “Some of the most exuberant and immediately engaging music they've ever recorded” 8/10 - uncut
