The relatively short amount of time between their first and second albums is testament to the band's self-contained creative environment and the productivity it encourages.

There's a tendency to label this degree of self-reliant creativity 'DIY' - and the band do certainly feel emboldened by that ethos. Their craft is considered and purposeful, the means of its production reflecting the band's overall vision rather than the value system of an often haphazard and accidental DIY culture. The bass and drums provide a versatile anchor, at once soft, then aggressive, while the vocals drift woozily in and out, like druggy hindsight or skewed premonition.

With three guitarists in the band guitars were always going to be central to the music, but what is less expected is the dynamic interplay between the trio that suggests a three-headed version of the Verlaine-Lloyd axis at the heart of Television.

What's more, the absence of reverb is integral, in part attributable to the ambience of the studio, but also a conscious decision in order to add focus.
