This Brighton-based combo get points because on their website it says they ‘enjoy sitting on the beach, engaging in semi-meaningful relationships’. So should we all. This debut album was produced by Dave Eringa, famed for his work with everybody from the Manic St Preachers to Kylie. Good man that he is, he’s had the good sense to let these eccentric, quintessentially English songwriters breathe, so that their peculiar charms are presented in all their haphazard glory. Get past the kitchen sink racket they kick up and you’ll find killer hooks and surprisingly catchy choruses, especially in the frantic tilt-a-whirl rush of ‘In The Ocean’. Junkyard magic!
