There’s a dramatic connectivity with every track: the emotional intensity of balladic Touché Amoré blending with the laid-back, wistful vocal of ‘Furthermore’; brief clashes of angry sound stirring the soul yet sticking to the heart with each jangle, each warmly-uttered word. The chaotic, Jazzy chord progression of ‘Squint’ underpins a more animated vocal, yet there are tender moments here too: not avuncular, not dictatorial, just…connecting. ‘Goon Seat’ displays an empathetic beginning, the instruments echoing delicious melodies while Simonelli murmurs low beneath them, each word resounding like a kick to the head with a velvet foot.
