clasping their dynamics in an iron grip, the mancunian trio deliver a bold set of of feverishly rhythmic neoclassical jazz that oscillates between floating introspection and frantic athleticism, maintaining an appealing positivity throughout.

When a musical ensemble chooses to self-title an album mid-career, it usually signifies their conviction that they’ve arrived at a point they’ve always striven for but never quite attained before. Fusing jazz, classical and electronic influences (amongst others) with a thirst for innovation, they’ve been garlanded as makers of one of the Mercury Prize albums of the year (in ’14). “It’d be easy to reduce this to a contemplative, self-isolation listen, but its sweeping, and often majestic, meditations are worth much more than that. This is an album well worth your time, regardless of how much of it you have to spare” 8/10 – loud & quiet.
