It doesn’t all make sense, but you sense that’s the point.

Dork

This is far from your dime-a-dozen post-punk EP, sharing far more in spirit with the eclectic origins of the genre than their often resolutely riff-centric peer group.

NME

They remain committed to their sometimes sleazy, acerbic musical identity but flirt with new angles both lyrically and sonically; a reclined and assured follow-up that oozes their lovable dark traits and shows no threat of getting caught up in the pack.

While most people seem to be overwhelmed by the amount of post punk releases we have been getting over the past few months, for the most part I've been a huge fan of a lot of what I've heard from the genre. Albums from the likes of Idles, Shame and black country new road have been some of my favourites from the past year and a bit, and in general my view on the genre is quite positive.
