CRITIC REVIEWS

NME

'Heart Of Nowhere' is full of space created less by production and more by expert playing 

70
DIY

In a sense it presents itself as an evolutionary rather than revolutionary development, in this case one which takes its predecessor's penchant for the instant and injects an enormous dose of FM-friendly American power-pop from days of yore into the mix. 

70
AllMusic

Here Fink delves headfirst into a nostalgic look to past lovers, lost nights, and growing up, told with his typically melancholic slant.

Heart Of Nowhere presents a confident and accomplished band who know their way around a pop song. It’s a shame, then, that they seem to have lost some of their identity along the way.

60
Consequence of Sound

It’s a coming-of-age record, indeed, with counsel for today’s youth offered among the 10 tracks 

60
Drowned in Sound

This is a lovely little record for folk fans who like a Seventies scuff.

50
Pitchfork

Their search for large-scale anthems and keenness to replicate a formula that doesn’t come naturally to them leaves them sounding boxed in, and imbuing Heart of Nowhere with all the grace and flexibility of four concrete pillars.

30
The Fly

Only listen to this if you want to embarrass your kids in 20 years’ time.
