For LP numero dos, which goes by the name Waking Up To The Fire, the quintet have dialled back the sonic expanses. While they still utilise post-rock's most treasured hallmark, the crescendo-centred structure, this isn't representative of that genre. Or any genre, really. It's a patchwork record, compiled with scraps of electronica, frayed sections of pop, a sliver of rock and parts of shoegaze. There's nu-goth shadows and kwes.-ian samples, it's got soulful veins pumping scarlet trance. It all sounds so achingly familiar yet entirely fresh.
