CRITIC REVIEWS

DIY

A little bit cocky at times, sure, but with the tightness to back it up, ‘Night People’ feels like the band’s most natural and accomplished step so far.

The Guardian

It’ll sound great blaring from the car radio at rush hour, but you’ll find more darkness and complexity in Twilight fan-fic.

60
The Independent

Night People is a painfully disjointed album that shows a band at an impasse, unsure about which direction they want to go in. Stylistically, it’s a mess that even their most loyal fans might find it difficult to sift through.

The tragedy of ‘Night People’ is not its lack of instrumental innovation (that is present for sure), but rather more essentially its lyricism and musical spark.

Clash

In magnifying their sound they’ve diluted the idiosyncrasies that set them apart from every other five-piece rock band. Gone are those lyrical hooks that caught quicker than fire and the riffs that were instantly recognisable.

Going into a groovier pop-rock direction really paid off for this band.

Wow. Just wow. After the past two albums by these lot, I thought I was prepared for the shit they make. This caught me off guard tbh, but only as my expectations weren't low enough.
