A much more visceral outing than their 2007 album debut. It takes a few minutes for the record to even begin to reveal itself, as a swarm of 1950s acapella ("Secrets at the prom") gives way to resonant drones, room noise & sub bass ("Slaughter killing carnage"). It's here that "Failure" unexpectedly kicks in with a tribal stomp & a fluttering guitar acting as a pair of wings, lifting the circular chants of the song's melody off the ground. It's all at once joyous, insecure & blissed-out—and sounds nothing like we've heard from A Sunny Day in Glasgow before.
