tell me that things will turn out right

I don't think I ever got round to exalting the praises of Blaine and the lads back in August when I first bought this album. It's darn good, and, according to guitarist/vocalist Will Rees, "it's got a lot of cock in it." Interesting.

Anyway, it's packed with tunes.
I posted 'flash a hungry smile' back here when they first released it on their website as a free download back in May, and now I've got the album I can safely say that the rest of it certainly managed to live up to that song (which I had pretty much on repeat for about a month).

They've recently released the video for 'Show me the Light', one of my favourite songs from the album. It's one of those songs which, for some reason I can't put my finger on, just makes me feel really happy when I listen to it. The video is nice too; simple, and really nicely shot. And the slightly muted colour of it is nice. I like a lot.

this comes out as a single on the 1st of November.

I'm going to see them live next monday in Cambridge, which I am rather excited for - I've seen them once before but that was at a festival, so it's a slightly different vibe really. Their support is a band called Tribes, who I have heard of but don't really know much about, so I'm going to look into them a little more before I go... But yes! I'll post about it with pictures and whatnot in about a week's time. What fun.
