Overview

This is a fantastic five-song (plus alternate demo) debut from Oxford, U.K. vets, who interestingly include drummer Loz Colbert from Ride, and now that he is in the Jesus and Mary Chain, his bandmate guitarist Mark Crozer. The new quintet doesn't rehash either band, or even the dream pop/shoegaze style from yesteryear in general, as much as build on its foundation and update it -- incorporating its elements into an exciting fuzzy pop that's as spirited as it is amazingly moody like threatening skies. Co-lead singer Fi McFall is a real find, too, with her commanding voice somewhere betwixt Scotland's Hazey Janes' Alice Marra and the Stars' Amy Millan. Yet the group loses nothing when she cedes the mike to Crozer. The standouts are the slower "Never Slow Down" and "My Redemption," which call in Ride's tantalizing power in slower early songs such as "Vapour Trail" and "In a Different Place." But there's also pleasure in the thumping opener "Inside Out," which riffs off the House of Love's immortal "Destroy the Heart," and the humming "Inside Yourself." ~ Jack Rabid, The Big Takeover
