The Slow Show | Bush Hall | 25 November 2016
Comparisons with The National are inevitable. From Rob Goodwin’s baritone vocals to the slow-burning majesty of their music, there are obvious similarities. Naming themselves after a 2007 song by the Cincinnati, Ohio band probably doesn’t help.
But at their sold-out London show – held on the release date of second album, ‘Dream Darling’ – the Manchester five-piece emphasise once more that they’re a truly singular voice. With an effortless sense of unity and restraint that’s the result of accomplished musicians playing together for over five years, the band members perform one impeccably crafted song after another.
