"Drawing comparisons to early Sparks, Londoner's Silvery play unashamed pop. Not the kind that goes, 'Oooh there's a girl and I love her, she has the same pencil case as me"" -not that kind of poppycock. No, it's the kind of pop that goes, ""Yeah, I see you over there, you wanna dance? I wanna dance, so let's dance god damnit'.""Horrors' and 'Devil in the Detail' are blustery little gems that rush in like a tornado swallowing a Wurlitzer and a collection of barnyard animals. It's the sound of the cast of the Carry On films starring in the Mighty Boosh. Psychedelic pop, the demented 'Warship Class' bounces backwards and forward like a madcap Blur during their 'Great Escape' era.Theatrical Organ parts, the stumbling vocals, the fuzz guitar, it's all a mess of influences and arcade game melodies. 'Star of The Sea' is a tormented sea shanty bubbling under foamy bass notes, tidal wave riffs and whirling organ sounds. It's a dizzy circus freak-out -if you need any proof look no further than 'Revolving Sleepy Signs'. It's mental and it rocks."
