NOT­TING­HAM ROCK­ERS SKIL­FULLY TONE IT DOWN ON NEW MINI-AL­BUM

■ LACEY’S NEW re­lease is just in time for their UK jaunt sup­port­ing Bowl­ing For Soup. Which is kind of ironic con­sid­er­ing BFS are froth­ier than a Frap­puc­cino, while this is a far more down­beat foray than Lacey’s 2015 ful­l­length de­but. Gone are bright an­thems like Tonight and All Too Far to be re­placed by melan­choly pi­ano-led brood­ers like You Know Noth­ing (which, un­for­tu­nately, is not a lament for Jon Snow). Shadow does bring out the big sing-along bits, but the over­all tone is still bruised and sub­dued. It’s a gear-change that suits the band, and it’ll be in­ter­est­ing to see where Lacey go next. DOWN­LOAD: Shadow. FOR FANS OF: Tak­ing Back Sunday, Young Guns, Mal­lory Knox.
