    Alexandra Pollard, writing at The Independent:

    “Most of the songs were written before the breakup, which is weird because it does sound like a breakup record,” says Bain, as we settle on the floor beneath the shade of a tree. “I’ve analysed them retrospectively, and it feels like they’re about a breakup, but at the time, I wasn’t thinking, ‘I wanna break up with Marika’. I guess I was breaking up with a portion of myself as well. And that’s really hard to do. A lot of like, issues that I had… I had loads of anger and lots of weird stuff, like drinking and drug taking.”

    The new album came out last week and it gets my full recommendation. It’s damn good.

    Listened to this twice at work today for the first time. Went in fairly blind to the sound and damn, I really liked it. A couple of elite tracks and a handful of very good. Also has some Matt Healy in it!
