Entering his fourth decade of penning gorgeous, idiosyncratic tunes sewn across the hearts of many, Rhys shows no sign of running out of the joyful creativity that makes his work so special.

Sophisticated flourishes of production, dense and layered without being overly cerebral or sacrificing emotion or feel. It’s music that rewards repeat listening – it’s not necessarily easy to digest on a first listening experience.

It draws on the very best of the tradition it alludes to, while playfully subverting it. It’s rare to hear music at once so experimental and also so entirely pleasurable – fleeting moments rendered immortal.

The result of this isolation is an intense collection of memorable and powerful tracks that twist and turn. An intensity that’s present in both the explosive and mellow moments.

Though whether you’re a fan of the direction they’ve taken or not, nobody can deny that it was a bold and impressive move for a band of such longevity to explore a new sound and we’re interested to see what they’ll do for album fifteen.

It’s three years since Django Django released their third album... I’m delighted to say that the band seems to have used the interim time to craft a set of songs that sees them right on the top of their game.

This is a great record, that sounds great from the word go and only gets better from repeated playing. Celeste has made a gorgeous soul album, with sprinklings of gospel and jazz that deserves your ears and your money.
