BRIGHTON duo Laura Mary Carter and Simon Ansell have been a model of consistency since forming eight years ago, and are now recognised as one of the finest indie acts around.

This third album continues a progression of their sound, which began with 2010’s Fire Like This, with greater ambition complementing their garage roots.

Occasionally this approach works wonders, such as on fabulous lead single Cold and rip-roaring punk rocker Je Me Perds, but this is probably their least consistent effort to date.

It’s finest moments are arguably the best songs they’ve written thus far, and it marks a clear step in the right direction.

Whether they’re getting any better is open to question, but when they’re making albums this good, it hardly matters. 7/10. AW
