The digital music era we live in, is one of contraction. Much of the music the under 35’s love comes from a tiny little yellow folder found on their hard drive or from within one of the numerous streaming sites now available. This enables music fans to contract geographical distance to within a lazy reach for their mouse, as the musical scenes from cities thousands of miles away are instantly available at your laptop.
Delving so wholeheartedly into the Postcard aesthetic might lead a listener to consider whether they can offer anything else or are they just a musical one trick pony? This is answered adroitly in the beautifully melodic pure jangle-pop of the closing What’s Left Behind (see below), which shows that this band have a ready made avenue of further brilliance to travel down, should they ever need it.
However lets hope they keep their scratch, edge and spike for a few more albums yet !!!
