While listening to this Tasmanian band’s third album, you could easily be forgiven for thinking this record was released during the heyday of punk-pop in the late nineties and early noughties.
The first two records from this group were certainly more experimental than If This Is All We’re Going To Be, but overall this new album is a much better offering, as they have now distilled their sound to the essential elements. These elements include gripping vocals which are easy to sing along to while also remaining poignant and insightful.
The only drawback for this record however is their unwillingness to explore different tempos. As such it becomes a little over excitable and fails to allow the listener a moment to breathe and take it all in during a sole listen. (JA)
