KKKK JOY­FUL, GENRE-BEND­ING RE­TURN FROM RIFF-TASTIC LEEDS NOISENIKS

■ PULLED APART By Horses are Bri­tish rock’s In­be­tween­ers. Okay, they’re not a bunch of so­cially awk­ward teenagers, al­though their mu­sic re­tains a cer­tain sixth-form bois­ter­ous­ness, four al­bums in. Nope, they de­serve that tag be­cause they’ve never quite fit­ted into any sound or scene, avoid­ing trends in favour of pur­su­ing their own im­pulses.ac­cord­ingly,the Haze de­liv­ers both sleazy rock’n’roll and sug­ary glam-pop, with the band putting equal ded­i­ca­tion into their myr­iad com­po­nents to cre­ate a joy­ous whole. For ev­ery low-slung groove or punky riff, there’s a mo­ment that re­calls Arc­tic Mon­keys.the ti­tle of The Haze’s closer sums it up: this is Dumb Fun, and if you can’t put any other name to the racket PABH cre­ate, that’ll do just fine. DOWN­LOAD: Ho­tel Mo­ti­va­tion. FOR FANS OF: HECK, Di­nosaur Pile-up. OLLY THOMAS
