The U.K. five-piece’s second album soothes their frenetic punk charge into gothic mood pieces. There’s still plenty of angst and dissatisfaction in George Mitchell’s yelps and bellows but his band are more reliant on atmosphere than primal energy here. Black-clad ’80s alt-rock is their key touchstone – from “My Life in Rewind”’s intricate twang and jangle to the pulsing goth-rock of “Heads or Tails”, and dream-pop torch song “Velvet”. What remains is their ear for a killer chorus, not least on the swooping headrush of “Euphoria”.
