Embrace - Refugees EP

by Dan Clay Rating:8 Release Date:2014-02-17

After an eight year hiatus, Yorkshire’s most harmonious brothers return with a rather different musical embrace and the first single, 

, off their new self-titled album. Ditching the guitars is always a risky venture – see Radiohead – but with this more euphoric, dance-based track, the band have found a new voice, something sadly not backed up by the remaining, rather mixed, EP tracks.

While ‘Bullets’ feels like and Echo and the Bunnymen rip-off and ‘Chameleon’ goes nowhere with its more rock-infused riffs, only the sweeping ‘Decades’, which keeps the dance theme resonant, really stands out. A perfect companion b-side to ‘Refugees’ change of direction; time to embrace it.
