The Line of Best Fit

The Sun and Her Scorch is largely a refinement of the band's previous sound – but when they sound this good there's no need to push boundaries just yet.

'The Sun And Her Scorch' is an album that’s as dazzling as it is dark; repeat listens shattering its veneer of beauty and finally giving away its stark fragility.

Dizzy are at their prime with their sophomore album, The Sun and Her Scorch.

for dizzy’s sophomore release, it’s a continuation of their trademark dream pop sound of atmospheric indie pop. Amsterdam magic is in the hooks (@‘the magician’), and Katie Munshaw steadies the wave of success from their juno award winning debut

Even the more melancholy tracks have a brightness to them, elevated by Katie's vocal style and lyrics.

fav tracks: good and right, the magician, roman candles, daylight savings time
least fav track: lefty
