While this Ex­eter trio’s 2016 de­but was chock-full of Academy-ready an­thems, it could some­times sound like a homage to their 90s and 00s alt-rock heroes. How­ever, the same can’t be said for its block­buster fol­low-up, which sees Man­son MA and off­set-tot­ing front­man Mark Hol­ley and co craft their own niche through sharply-fo­cused song­writ­ing, com­plete with or­ches­tral flour­ishes and some truly gor­geous, shim­mer­ing chord tones – take a lis­ten to Man­icInMe and Sæla for prime ex­am­ples of Hol­ley’s vast multi-amp tex­tures. This sec­ond of­fer­ing from the trio should have fans of grunge, in­die and emo alike wor­ship­ping at the Foxxes’ den.
