■ This EP from Swin­don new­com­ers All Ears Avow is a record teem­ing with am­bi­tion. Open­ing with a ti­tle-track that’s as brash as it is in­tri­cately struc­tured, this quar­tet clearly aren’t in­ter­ested in hold­ing any­thing back, and this joy­ously brazen ap­proach con­tin­ues across the re­main­ing four tracks. The bass-driven All Your Pieces is the high­light, and it’s an an­them that’s pow­ered by the might­ily im­pres­sive dis­play of vo­cal­ist/ gui­tarist Claire Sut­ton, whose vo­cal range and charis­matic per­for­mance sug­gest a star in the mak­ing. Else­where, Got Lucky pos­sesses plenty of groove, Over The Wall is charged by Claire’s im­pas­sioned de­liv­ery, and fi­nal track Fake brings things to a tri­umphant con­clu­sion. Skin & Bones is a smart and stylish re­lease that’s crammed with ex­u­ber­ance, as­pi­ra­tion and prom­ise, and such is this record’s qual­ity, you should keep your eyes and ears fo­cused on its cre­ators over the com­ing 12 months.
