Slightly less intense, 'Coffee Malts' follows with a more relaxed prog-rock vibe to it, quite a cool song to chill to which invoked tingly vibes of summer for me. 'Fourth Four Balcony Flight' sounds a whole lot like its predecessor to the extent where both tracks run so smoothly into one another I didn't realise the song had changed! Then there's 'Cold Sweats In A Thermal Jacket' which begins with flashes of an almost regular indie-pop song until the repetitive guitar structure and drum beats kick in, and is probably the least engaging song on the EP (sorry guys). 'Alternate Tunings For Regular People' wraps up with two beautiful tracks that cross the noise-rock divide to meet common ground with post-rock/metal. 'Post Relationship Feedback' is quite dark but a melodical treat for the ears. But the winner for me is the closer 'Fussball Politics' with its super-catchy, groove-infused hooks it reverbs through you in exactly the right way. Off the back of this EP, continuing to grow beyond what is already a solid fanbase should be easy for these guys, they know what they are doing and they do it well. The question is, will it be widely appreciated? Only time will tell.
