Super sweet DIY pop from these two chaps who make short, catchy songs fashioned from brittle, scratchy guitars and clear, lackadaisical vocals. Occasionally something else enters into the fray birdcalls, say, or the brisk trill of a bicycle bell but that's about it and, truth be told, that's all things really need. Songs cover London, camping, braving death-defying roundabouts and picking nettles for soup, and each one's a polite little killer, bringing to mind the Television Personalities, Milky Wimpshake, the Undertones and the Desperate Bicycles in terms of sound and the ability to find something hearteningly worthwhile in the seemingly humdrum. Playful, funny and far too easy to sling on repeat time and again, just go buy it already so I can sign off and listen to 'Oh Camberwell' again, k?
