The magic of London Grammar runs deeper than just one natural talent, though. The band’s ability to match that strength with perfectly pitched arrangements is virtually unmatched.

The remarkable thing about ‘I See You’ is that it doesn’t tire – quite the opposite, it grows with every single listen.

Alt-J don’t play by the rules - the rules bend around them.

Circa Waves - Different Creatures
March 10, 2017
Critic Score

‘Different Creatures’ is a record that’s bold in its vision, free in its adventure and ambitious in its destination. It comes from a space of not giving a shit, of wanting to be bigger and instead of creating a sound to fit the stages they’re playing - flips the story to create the band that’ll make their own. Because of it, ‘Different Creatures’ is packed with landmark moments for an important year.

Wolf Alice have shown their peers how to run free - but as the pack follows them through the hole they blasted in the mainstream consciousness two and a bit years ago, they’ve no intention of thundering towards the slings and arrows that await. They’re smarter than that. With ‘Visions of a Life’, Wolf Alice have taken flight.

Album five is different. The band are still a band but there are no brave faces here. There’s no hiding behind an idea, or pretending because you have to. Instead ‘After Laughter’ is ok with not being ok.

‘Melodrama’ is quite probably the album of the year.

As wider horizons open, Clark has grasped her opportunity with both hands. There’s no sign of hanging on for dear life, either. She’s in complete control at all times.
